I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Matthew 20:28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.

My Thoughts
Wow!... I have read this many times... but this is the first time it struck me this way. Jesus could have came down to earth and ask just to be worshiped. He could have said that He was the Son of God and told us all He deserved to be worshiped. Another words he could have came to earth and said "I deserve!" He didn't he came to earth to die for our sins and while he was here he went about saying what else do you need?

In today's world we all think we deserve!  Even commercials tell us we deserve to have more than we have money for.... We deserve a priceless day. We could change the world if each person, each day would ask just one person, and mean it "What can I do for you?" ... What if we each ask just two people a day "What can I do for you?" ... What if we all started asking that instead of "What can I get for me?" "What will this company do for me?"

Imagine how businesses would change if all the people in a business asked, truly ask each morning "What can I do for this company that supplies me a job?" .. What if each boss asked "What can I do for these employees that make my joy possible?" The company would grow by leaps and bounds...and prosper and everybody would benefit.

Jesus was self-less! What if each of us could be self-less a least for a little while each day? If we all would do that our earth would never be the same again....the benefits that we would reap would be truly "priceless!"
