Daily Fountain 2017 - Consider It Worth Doing







Wednesday May 17

Bible Reading:     Gen. 14: 17 - 20
Topic:         Consider It Worth Doing

Abram fought to rescue his nephew Lot who was captured when Sodom, where he lived was subdued in battle.

Our environment, friends and associates influence our lives and that of our families.

Many people today are in prison because of bad company. Be mindful where you live and the company you keep because they can make or mar your life.

Abram's sacrifice for the freedom of Lot is worth emulating.

Considering his past experience with Lot (Gen. 13: 10 - 11), it would have been easily justified for him to attribute Lot's ordeal as the consequence of his misconduct, but he showed genuine love and concern.

Be the Abram of your own family. Do your best to save your relatives. Many of them are under the bondage of sin, your intervention is greatly needed. Organize programs, if you can preach, show love and pray for their salvation.

Check if there are some among them who are passing through difficult times, including people who may have served you in the past. Allow God to use you to rescue them.

As you do that, God will bless you as He blessed Abram through Melchizedek. Just consider it worth doing.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, give me the passionate desire to forgive, love and help those who need my help, Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 14: 18

"And Melchizedek King of Salem brought forth bread and wine; and he was the Priest of the Most High God"
