Honesty Is The Best Policy

Saturday 24th November 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Proverbs 11:1-31

Topic:- Honesty Is The Best Policy

Text:- 2 Corinthians 8:21

An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son.
He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, “I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne.”
He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds.
In one home, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout. The boy had done everything but he failed.
His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused.
The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful.
The King went to each boy asking, “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?” And each boy said “Yes, your majesty.”
The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear.
The King asked him, “What did you do with the seed I gave you?” The boy said “I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout.”
The King went to the throne with the boy and said, “I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout. If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the test.
Brothers and Sisters! We live in a society where people will do anything for success. God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson.
How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs?
How many of God Servants will be CROWNED AS BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END?

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, help me to be honest in all my daily living, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I refuse to dance to the tune of my enemies, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, help me to be faithful till the end of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have a Lovely Saturday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
