March 9 - Choice Gleanings

 DAILY READINGS: Exodus:27:20 to 28:14; Psalm 73; Acts:15:36 to 16:15

Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people. Acts:23:5

The apostle Paul was wrongly assaulted by the Jewish authorities, and he spoke out against those who commanded him to be struck. But when Paul understood that it was the high priest who gave the command, he acknowledged his error. Let us, like Paul, seek to conduct ourselves righteously, obeying God’s Word, as we seek to shine as lights in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, acknowledging that the powers that be are ordained of God. —D. Pickup

Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true,

Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

— Horatio R. Palmer
