MAY 3 In Genesis 12:1-3 God promised to make Abraham's name great, if he would carefully follow the Lord. Abraham did follow the Lord; and now, after 4,000 years, every Monday school child knows about Abraham. I Chronicles 14:16 says, "David therefore did as God commanded him." I believe that was the reason for David's success, the reason for his prosperity. God has a blueprint for successful living. Joshua 1:8 tells us, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make they way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." The Bible contains everything we need for success in our Christian lives. The program for both the successful family and church is found in the Word of God. That is why we invite you and others to read with us through the Bible each year. I trust your reading is proving to be a blessing in your life and home.
