Revelation 1-3 – Day 27

Revelation 3:17-18

You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

The Thought

The first sentence here makes me think of many of the celebrities who are regularly in our news items, or featured in television and radio interviews. Most of them consider themselves as having succeeded, either in their field of work, whether business, films, television, government. Or because of an inheritance, being born into a certain family line, with a famous name! Too often their fame is short lived. Sadly, we hear of scandals, illegal dealings, untruths, etc.

Many people in those categories are open and honest, and we must never condemn those we consider less honest, we must pray. Only God really knows the truth.

When Jesus was in the temple courts one day, some of the Jewish elders brought a woman caught in adultery, they brought her to Jesus expecting to be able to trick Him. But as always, He won the day and in the end nobody accused her of anything (John 8:1-11)! So many of us are quick to accuse others without considering our own mistakes, errors and plain wrongdoings!


Read John 8:1-11 today and think about it as you go through your day. Where would you be in that picture? An accuser? One who was trying to test Jesus? In the crowd watching what would happen? One like the woman set free from any sin she had committed?

Praise God that He knows everything about who you are and still loves you.
