GLEANING GOD’S WORD! – Acts 17:11 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Acts 17:11 – Devotional

Acts 17:11

“They received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

As I watch the wild birds outside my window, they eagerly fight over seeds I have placed in their feed cups. It seems that they want to make sure that they get every morsel of food that is available.

In today’s Scripture, Paul introduces us to the people of Berea. He commends them for three reasons: 1) they were fair-minded; 2) they received the word with all readiness; 3) they searched the Scriptures daily. Wow!

There is no specific letter that Paul penned to the people of Berea, but he commends them highly. It was because they were faithful to the WORD! We are not told how large the Berean church was, but they were a blessing to Paul.

Like my birds scratching away to glean every last bit of seed, it is my sincere desire to scratch away at the life-giving Word of God and apply it to my life. I ask you to make a new commitment to join with me in discovering the truth that the Lord has for us.

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!
