Bible reading:  Colossians 3:16, Joshua 1:8.
Memory verse: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15(KJV)
A man  before  leaving  for  work, left  a  letter on the  dining  table  for  his wife. Chores around the house kept the woman from seeing the letter until about 12 noon. When she got to see the letter, excitement overran her sense of composure. She kissed the  paper when she saw  “my beautiful  wife”  at the  top, hugged  it when  she  saw  “I  love you with all my heart”  at the bottom, and  sniffed  it  when she  realized it smelled of her husband’s  perfume.  

Out of excitement,  and without  even  bothering to read the  content  of  the letter, she made up  her  mind to cook him  his favourite  meal for dinner that night. She quickly rushed to the kitchen and got to work. After  cooking and setting the  table, she  went to the wash room  and took  a shower, put  on  her  night gown  and  dressed  the bed.
Just as she was about to finish laying the bed her husband walked into the house. When she heard him come in she went out to welcome him. To her surprise, her husband was very furious when he saw her. She became very confused and  asked  why he  wouldn’t  even let  her welcome  him  with  a hug but  instead have that  angry look  on his  face.
The husband asked, “Did you read the letter I left you on the table?” The woman responded, “Oh yes I saw it.  That’s  why I  went through  all  the trouble to  prepare  your favourite  meal  for you. Thank you so much honey, it was sweet of you.” She leaned in to give him a kiss but he pushed her away to her surprise.
The husband went on, “If you did, then why haven’t you done any of the things. I instructed you to do?” The man went inside and came out again quickly with an already packed suit case. He headed straight for the door and said to his wife, “See you in 7 days.” The woman stood there confused but before she could say a word, the door had slammed behind him.

Many atimes out of excitement or lack of regard for details, we leave the most important things undone, and at other times, we do this as a result of familiarity. Let’s learn to pay attention to details. When last did you study the Book of books (the Bible); not just skimming through the pages.
Quote: The Bible is God’s letter to everyone who believes.
Prophetic Word: As the hart pants after the water brooks, may your heart pant after the Word, in Jesus name.
Prayer Focus:
Holy Spirit, give me fresh appetite for your Word daily, in Jesus name.
I clear away every physical and spiritual distraction from the Word, in Jesus name.
I receive power to read and to do God’s Will, in Jesus name.
