Day 1

Luke 6:45

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Ask yourself, "What is coming out of my mouth?"  Think about it as you re-read Luke 6:45.


day 2

Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV)

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.


                  Have you put much thought into who you are? Modern medical technology, social media, and even consistent gym activity can show an outward image through sweat and selfies, but do you still know who you are? Not that we are necessarily educated in the skill of self-awareness. We are taught early on that our intelligence is based on how well we perform on tests. Our likability amongst our peers determines our social status. Even our success for the future seems predicated on the placement of the homes in which we live and grow up. Please note that these things are all determined by external judgments, not internal convictions.  What others may have said about you, decided for you, or society says you must become are not final rules for who you are. So, the question remains, who are you?

           Right now, as you ponder the question, I would say, those with a healthy amount of self-esteem and those filled to the brim with personal insecurity will most likely fall in line with what externals have been spoken over us.  We find the short cut to the answer "who are we" found in the ramblings of a parent, teacher, friend, coworker, boss, and even the jerk cutting us off in traffic.  We rely more on what others have articulated about us than what we know internally to be true.  So who are you?

           When the proverb writer says, "what a man thinks in his heart, he is," the writer is addressing the heart is the center of a persons life.  Jewish thought was the heart was the seat of all a person's emotions and being; you couldn't fake something on the outside what the inside felt.  Particularly this scripture is referencing a cheap and stingy person could not bless others when at the core of their being; they were cheap and stingy.  That even to offer food to someone, they would do it begrudgingly and with an expectation of repayment.  

           That is the reason the most gifted amongst us may be the most terrorized, or the poorest amongst us may be the most at peace, or the smartest amongst us may be the most despicable.  Because it is not the outward observations and actions that we take that determine who we are but the state and condition of our heart.  So who are you?

           What does your heart say about you? Maybe today you say you prayed for family member to be healed, but in your heart, you wish them trouble, or while standing in line at Walmart you paid the balance of a single mom's ticket in front of you as she frantically looks for the last couple dollars, but you mumble as she whisks her cart away, she needs to manage her money better.  Your heart indeed reveals who you are, not your actions.  

           So today, instead of looking to external variables to determine who you are let us use our heart, why don't you begin by looking on the inside. Don't base your life's work on your bank account, Instagram followers, or the title you have.  Let us ask the Holy Spirit to help do a self-assessment of our hearts.

day 3

Psalms 51:10

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.


                  Have you ever messed up a project so bad you had to start from scratch, deciding at that moment that the destruction and annihilation of your previous work were more important than trying to fix it? Have you completed a project only to find a detail that was left out or neglected, and it rendered everything you had done previously null and void?  That sense of dread of having to start again or a bit of anger that you made a mistake is something I have experienced multiple times at multiple levels.  I wonder if God ever grows tired as he looks at me as the created being that falls short and or messes up what He originally intended.  

           There is a couple of things that need to be addressed in this prose that David is declaring that he needs God to clean him up and straighten him out. 

First would be this is an incredibly humbling experience for David.  Think about this chapter is written about David's adulterous affair and subsequent murderous actions. David pens these words for the entire nation of Israel to read of his abhorrent actions, he is declaring his sin to the masses and has left it be read in perpetuity, THAT MEANS FOREVER.  David will be forever be known as an adulterer and murderer.  I have a hard time when people find out I can be mean or have even lied.  Here in this song, David is announcing his sinfulness, oh what humility that takes. 

Second David recognizes he cannot fix himself; he needs God to do that.  David king of Israel, the man who has killed his ten thousands, possessed the largest kingdom to date, had the accolades legends were made for, cannot in and of himself fix the mistake.  As a matter of fact, when he tried to fix the wrong he had done with Bathsheba, it ended up having him murdering her husband.  David understood the only way to get this going in the right direction was to have the creator restart him and his heart.  

           God is a gracious and merciful God.  What is blinding to me is that God didn't scrap David and declared to the angels, "Another one messed up, guess we need to go back to the drawing board."  No God graciously extends an olive branch of conviction through Nathan, the prophet at which David comes to his senses and realizes the error of his ways.  No matter how much you think, you have done.  No matter how bad you think, you are.  No matter the overwhelming facts of your guilt. God still wants you, He still desires to set you on the right course, and God is still working all things for your good.  The catch is, will you let Him?

           David was posed with this same question, would he let God get him going in the right direction.  David understood that to correct the course of his life, his heart would need to be addressed first, and it would need to cleaned out.  The heart, the place of all human emotions for the Jew, David knew this place would need to swept out, patched up, and get a new coat of paint.  God, by his Spirit, would be doing all the heavy lifting in David's life.  David would simply need to be aware and allow God to do it, to clean out and rearrange the deep things of David's life.  

           Also, David would have to dedicate himself once more in loyalty and fidelity to the cause of his God.  It wasn't just that God's creation had gone off course, but that now David was acting in direct defiance of what the creator envisioned.  David would renew a devotion to what God wanted for his creation, and not David setting the terms of their arrangement.  Renewing David's spirit within him would be vital to success David would have moving forward.  It is not just that God wants to fix what is broken, but he wants to make sure it not likely to happen again.  

           So here you are today, asking the question of what is going on with your heart. Maybe you have messed up.  God is not overwhelmed by your mistake, but he would like to rework your heart.  God is not taking back by your failure, but he would like to set you up for your future. Will you allow him today to clean your heart and commit to following all that he has for you today?

Proverbs 4:23

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.


day 5

Day 5

Psalms 139:23–24

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!


                I have to admit I am notorious for the stereotypical male behavior of looking for lost objects.  Not that there haven’t been times that I have found what I am looking for, but more often than not, I will search and declare to the world the object of my desire has escaped my grasped and has not been kidnapped by the same demons that still my socks from the dryer.  Amid my ramblings and wailings for my lost object, my wife will calmly walk over to the last known location and pick up the said object and remind me to look harder.

           I am not declaring that your heart is lost, or your way is perverse, but you could be off course and possibly distracted from fulfilling your purpose.  David was no more different than the rest of us.  David is declaring in this song that he is having a man moment; David is sure that he is innocent of what his accusers are blaming him, and David wants verification of what he knows to be true.  The situation is when we ask God to look into the hidden corners of our life; He always finds something. 

           David was doing his best to prove that he was blameless, but by the end, he acknowledges that he needs to be guided in the way of heaven.  There are six things that David asks God to do for him in his life to address those that would say he is lacking.  The first is to search him.  I don’t know if you ever used a spotlight, but I would assume you have seen one in action.  No matter the depth of darkness, a spotlight illuminates a specified object no matter the night around it.  Not only does it illuminate it, but it brings to light any impurities, blemishes, or weakness that the object has.  When one shines a spotlight on something, your searching to reveal everything good that object of your illumination may provide, but in the course of spotting them, you may also show some bad. Though David was asking God to search for the good he had done, he was also availing himself to be seen as the fallible man he was. 

           Second, he asked God to know his heart.  He is inviting God to get up and close to him and experience, understand, and know the how of David’s actions.  It would be impossible to divorce oneself from the facts of the motive of a persons life if you lived up close, experienced life with them, and knew the reasons behind their actions.  It would make you complicit if you continued to allow a friend in which you knew to do bad things if you knew them this way.  God, by David’s invite, was asked to get into the nitty-gritty of his life, which would invite God to question and bring into account David’s motives.

           Third David asks God to try him.  David is asking God to test him. Not a hypothetical question of possibility but to present a situation that would require David to respond in the appropriate actions or be found guilty.  This request is not one that any of us would naturally ask God to do in our life.  However, not David, he is asking God to give him a situation in which he can prove his faithfulness during the dire issue.  More importantly, what if David fails, it shows God and David alike the areas that David still needs to work on. 

           Fourth, David asks God to know his thoughts.

Not unlike knowing his heart, this is to experience and understand what David is thinking.  However, the heart is the seat of emotions, so it is the motivation for the action to be taken, the mind is the decision-maker in the everyday activities of human interactions. The heart is the passionate reaction to life; the mind is the cognitive response to life circumstances.  David is asking God to evaluate him in his monotony. The everyday coming and going of his life.  The smallest details that most of us forgot we did before we arrived at work this morning. David wanted God to know him in his every day, no big deal, dealing with being a human being.

           Fifth, see if there is something terrible in David's life.

This question is not as cut and dry as it seems, like God looking for the time David cut off another chariot rider in traffic or cursed his soldiers for not killing enough of the enemy.  No, this is an investigation as to if David has offended someone and whether David has an awareness of the offense or not.  I can not tell you how many times I wonder if I have said something to offend others, or questioned if my actions have brought offense my way.  However, I haven’t asked God to verify if others are upset with me and to find out where I messed up.  This question is brutal to consider David is asking God to make David aware of letting down those who he cares.

           Finally, to lead him in eternity.

Essentially David is asking God to lead him in the way of heaven.  This statement is a subtle way of saying that David's way is not perfect nor divine, which is in direct contradiction of how he began the song that he was perfect and asked God to verify it.  David is saying maybe I have missed it, forgotten the way, or can't see where I need to go, so he is asking God to take him by the hand and show him the way. 

           You might not have lost your sock, wallet, or keys today. However, you may have lost your way.  You stand in indignance that you have it all figured out, and I simply ask, “do you?” Why don’t you ask the Holy Spirit to search you, your motives, your actions, to test you, and show you any offense and direction you need to take today.  You might be amazed at what He has to say to you.

Luke 9:23-24

And he said to all, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it."

Day 9

John 15:5-8

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.

When I was a kid, we lived in the city, but we had an unusually large backyard for the neighborhood in which we lived.  My mom and dad were always had a bit of green thumbs and raised tomatoes, strawberries, squash and other summer veggies that Gen Z’ers and Millennials would be proud of today.  My dad took particular pride in his fruit trees that seemed to provide the most delicious sweet reward after a long day.  He especially loved his peach tree.  I remembered the first year he planted it, it didn’t produce but one or two peaches, they were fabulous but did nothing more than whet the appetite. 

I recall him talking about the next season that it was going to be amazing to enjoy the fruit of his labor.  All through fall and winter, he watered and fertilized the tree. He built a berm around the base so that it could keep extra water at its roots so it could produce the maximum amount of peaches in the coming months. 

When early spring arrived, he wrapped the leaves and first blossoms with a massive trash bag to keep late frost from destroying his crop.  When early summer finally arrived, I remember him pacing every morning as he would check that tree and make sure his peaches were coming in nicely.  The tree had more peaches than it looked like it could support, and he remarked it would be only a few more weeks, and it would be ready.  Then one of those famous Oklahoma storms rolled through one evening. After getting up the following morning, I saw my dad fuming around his downed peach tree that had snapped at its base and laid over before his peaches were ripe for the picking.  When I finally mounted enough courage to go outside and ask what happened, my dad said the tree was truly sick and that it had separated from its roots. Its large crop of peaches could not be sustained, and it was bound to die at some point. It just had been faking its severity all season.  The tree produced a lot but didn’t live long because it got separated from its source of life, its roots.  

           I wonder how many times in our lives we feel like we are producing so much only for it to fall to pieces and have nothing to show for it. Or we produced and produced and produced only to feel overwhelmed and fatigued at the end and wonder if it was all for worth it. Production is not optional to a person who belongs to the body of Christ.  However, what that production is and how it leaves us afterward is a good judgment if we were connected to the right source, to begin with.      

Jesus tells his disciples if they will abide with him, they will produce much fruit.  That word abide means to wait in place or hold fast unto.  That sounds counterproductive to high yield production. However, Jesus says it paramount, to produce, we must remain connected, and we have to hold on for dear life.  It is almost as if Jesus is setting the tone that at some point in the fast-paced, results-driven, got have it now adventure, he was telling the disciples if they tried to do it on their own, it would never last, and it would never succeed.  Jesus painted a clear picture that for them to have success in the future, they always needed to be rooted in the source.  That source would always be Jesus and obedience to his commandments.  

Maybe you think that you want some things accomplished, and they seem like good things; I would only ask you to ponder are they God things.  Meaning, are they things that while connected to the source would be naturally produced? 

For example, my dad’s pear trees didn’t produce apples, or his peach trees produce plums, no the tree connected to source produced the fruit of its source.  You may be wanting your kids to listen to you because your right, but is your source because your right or that Jesus has a plan and purpose for their life.  You may desire a raise at work so you can pay off your bills, but is your source financial security over financial responsibly and the stewardship that Jesus asks us to have.  The ends in Jesus's opinion does not justify means.  What source we are connected to for the production of the action directly contributes to the success of the outcome. 

Today begin by praying and asking God if you are connected to the right source.  Ask if you are trying to do things of your own power and prestige, other than out devotion and obedience to the true source of your life.  Allow the Holy Spirit to point some things out that are failing because you are connected to the wrong source. Allow God to breathe new life and peace into your life as you reset your source.  Acknowledge that the things you’re doing in your own power will never succeed and that you need God’s source moving forward.  What are you connected to?

Day 11

John 15:20

Remember the word that I said to you: "A servant is not greater than his master." If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

One of my girls a few weeks ago was so distraught and overwhelmed, why you ask? Because Starbucks had run out of vanilla frappuccinos.  I know… the horror.  The abysmal state of affairs in the United States of America due to the absence of frothy milk. 

She went into convulsions as if I had taken the only thing of value in her life and burned it to a crisp.  She moaned, howled, wept with complete disregard of her surroundings.  I was neither amused nor entertained; I was annoyed and put off by such a total lack of dignity at the lack of a sugary drink. As this heinous emotional tantrum was on display for all to see my other daughter without missing a beat declares, "First world problems" at which point the one who had a reached a fever pitch in her cries goes, "haha I guess it's not that big of deal" then turned around and walked away.  I stood there in a stupor, wondering what I have done to fail them as their father.

           Ever have a bad day, month, maybe it been a bad year when everything thing in your life is not following the desired plan you had laid out to God as part of the prearranged agreement.  I am certainly not minimizing the hurt or pain you may be experiencing.  It most likely is real and warrants your attention, but we are so quick to blame God for being complicit in allowing these evils to befall us when he warned us they would.  Jesus laid out before his disciples that evil would come knocking at the doorsteps of their homes, and they should be neither surprised nor overwhelmed by it.  

           When Jesus makes this statement in John 15, this is like the teacher giving all the answers before the test is handed out without communicating that there is about to be a test.  It was the last night that before, he would suffer the most humiliating and disgusting death that one could experience in the known world.  Jesus is warning these men if the world will do it to him, the world will do it too them.  In just a few short hours after making this statement, he would be arrested and prosecuted. 

I wonder as the disciples gathered afar from the trial; these were the words that wrung in their ears, "if they do it to me, they will do it to you." It puts into perspective that after it is all said and done, only John is found at the foot of the cross as Jesus willingly gave up his life for all, all the other 11 guys are nowhere to be found. Could be that this is not how the disciples intended to follow Jesus by following him into persecution.  

           What makes Jesus so amazing when he has every reason to cut at least 11 guys off from eternity due to their abandonment, but Jesus goes out of his way to restore them to the way.  Jesus visits them in their homes and lets them poke at the holes in his body.  Jesus shows up where they are fishing, telling them how to do their job better when they had trained their whole lives doing it, only to prove that he could forgive and move them forward in His master plan.  Why? In my opinion, because he knew persecution would come.  Jesus knew sometimes life would get the better of his disciples, and he wanted them to understand what grace was, the giving of a good gift we truly did not deserve it.  

           What does this have to do with Starbucks? I wonder how many of us, when posed with a difficult situation or trying time we throw our hands up in desperation and quit.  Or we walk around dejected and defeated because it is not going according to our master plan. 

Better yet, we blame God for the ills of this life and try to bargain with him to lessen the burden we carry at the moment.  You may be saying my situation is a lot worse than not having Starbucks, great, look to Jesus today instead of your problem.  It doesn't surprise him.  It didn't catch him off guard.  He is not overwhelmed by it; He has already defeated death.  See your problem or situation as a reminder that as a follower of Christ, there is nothing that you can not face that you can not overcome.  Just as Christ overcome death, hell, and the grave, so too can you.

           So when the world hurls insults and pain your way, joyfully be reminded your in good company, Jesus is right there with you. Don't throw a fit and quit; carry on and press on.  Jesus has already paved the way for you.

Day 12

Philippians 3:8-9

"Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith inChrist, the righteousness from God that depends on faith." 

“Give me more!!!” is what I hear various nights as I work out with a great group of guys I do life with.  They exclaim it with eager anticipation trying to get me to push hard, sweat more, and exhaust my body to its fullest extent.  However, the words “give me more” is far from only heard in the gym. The words are in uttered board rooms as the CEO exclaims, he needs more from his R&D department though its members haven’t spent time with their own families in three months as they work to exhaustion.    It is heard in disciplinary meetings, and HR tells the employee they are not who they thought they hired, and expectations are not being met though the employee is continually being asked to make small compromises to their ethics. These words are heard in the sobs of a wife who once more screams at her husband that he is not emotionally connecting to her enough.  Those words are heard in the parking lot of the local high school as a boyfriend tries to convince his girlfriend to compromise her morals just a little more.  “Give me more” is found thorough out consumer culture as we are looking for little more love, little more money, little more attention, and little more prestige.  However, for what? What can we give to each other that will fix the circumstance? What can we provide to employers, co-workers, spouses, or relationships that will satisfy their thirst for more?

           When Paul pens these words to the church of Philippi, he is coming from a place of personal acknowledgment of success. Paul was a pharisee of the Pharisees.  He was more skilled, articulate, and better educated than most others.  The premier teacher of the time had taught him and, at one point, Paul was permitted to arrest and prosecute anyone that would defy the Jewish elites’ desires.  On top of his religious pedigree, he was a bonafide Roman.  He had a claim to rights and accolades the masses could only dream of. No one could arrest him without due process.  He had a right to demand free favors from anyone not of the same birthright.  He was exceptional by all religious, socio-economic, and cultural standards.  In spite of his glaring and extensive resume, he considered it rubbish.  

Rubbish… we don’t truly understand the word in modern vernacular. We consider it to mean trash, waste, or, at most, a random collection of excess that we do not need.  Although partially right in meaning, the feeling around this word carries much more weight.  Rubbish, as Paul was using with the church, is a vulgarity that would have gotten my mouth washed out with soap growing up.  As a matter of fact, the closest we have in modernity is the four-letter word that describes excrement.  Probably not what you had in mind, and most definitely not what the church of Philippi had in mind when they showed up to church on the Sunday, Paul’s letter arrived and was read aloud to the congregation.  Shocking might be an understatement; offensive probably better describes those that heard that word expressed in their presence.  Maybe even offensive to you as you read it now.

Why would Paul go to such great lengths to say that word? Why would he risk his message with the method of a vulgarity? Because Paul wanted everyone to know what he thought of his pedigree.  Paul minces no words when he describes how we should live our life as a follower of Christ. Everything we were, are, or are to become doesn’t matter unless Christ is revealed in our life. Paul was clearly communicating its not about how much you do, say, or accomplish in life if Christ is not a part of it, it is rubbish.  

In the rat race of life as we live, Paul is trying to help us understand the best we can give to this world is Jesus. No amount of money will replace Jesus as the way into heaven.  No meteoric rise in a company will compare to honoring Jesus with your life.  The best thing that you can offer your spouse is not a new house but Jesus.  The success of your future relationships is not what you do for each other but the Jesus that the two of you have.  Having, showing, and living out a life filled with Christ is the greatest accolade one can have.  So when the world says, “Give me more,” give them more Jesus, he’s the only thing that isn’t rubbish.

Matthew 22:37-39

"And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your should and with all your ind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Humans, by in large a fickle, fickle by definition means to change frequently.  I am fickle, my kids are fickle, my family is fickle, and the people that surround me in the world at large are fickle.  I am not saying this is always a detriment or causes deep issues for a person.  However, I do feel that it is merely an attribute of the human condition.   No matter how calm or stoic a person's demeanor may be, one's response or reaction could be volatile, do merely to what was faced throughout the day.   Someone who is known to live from one emotional crisis to the next can have a peaceful day determined by nothing more than there being nothing on the calendar.   We are fickle, we change, we adjust, we overcorrect, and we transition.  Not only do we change, but we know others change as well.  The most rock-solid of marriages go through seasons of confusion.  The most steadfast of friendships experience testing.  All because people are fickle.  It seems that we spend a lot of our time trying to figure out others while we are far from being stedfast.  

           What does this have to do with our relationship with God? A lot, in my opinion, we apply the rules of the fickle world to a constant God. 

We think that sometimes our prayers are not going through cause God is having a bad day.  Perhaps after a miracle, we have been hoping for comes about, we chalk it up to the extra thank you, we said last night before dinner. 

Better yet, we think that we can twist or cajole God into some desired outcome with our displays of affection that will most certainly catch his attention and thus change his mind.  However, all those expectations that are ficklely applied have no application to constant, all-knowing, ever-present, and never changing God.  I believe God knew us so well that when Jesus was posed with the question, "what is the greatest law," it was a trick to see if Jesus would be fickle and change the perceived way to know God.

           Let us ponder for a minute though on the idea that God, the same yesterday and forever, simplifies his expectations on his creation.  It is not a moving target that he presents to his children to try to satisfy His fickle desires on a whim.  No, God says that to know God well is to love Him with everything you are and to love others. 

This statement by Jesus isn't an emotional outburst Jesus has. It is not articulated because of outside force that demands he provide an answer under duress.  Jesus simply says love God and love people, because that is all it takes to make God smile at you.  

           The fickleness of our humanity is brought under check when we have been presented the opportunity to Love God and Love People.  You may be wondering how so? Have you ever thought if you should do something out the box, like pay for your neighbors light bill, or mow your great aunt's yard, or buy groceries for the single mom down the street? When we, through a fickle lens, try to explain the feeling or justify why we shouldn't, maybe we should ask the question, "does this show I Love God, and Love People?" if it does, DO IT!! When we ask ourselves if we should fast, or do devotions, or even pray, again, we should ask the question, "does this show I Love God, and Love People?" and if it does, DO IT!! Our ever-changing, mood swung, environment lead personality is kept in check when we look through the lens of ever constant, never-changing God who says to simply, "Love God, and Love People." So instead of trying to figure it out the will of God today, if it loves God and loves people... do it.  What is he leading you to do today?
