Daily Nugget

    Friday, August 9th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

George Sweeting wrote about the desperate need for honesty in our culture. He referred to Dr. Madison Sarratt, who taught mathematics at Vanderbilt University for many years. Before giving a test, the professor would admonish his class like this:

“Today I am giving two examinations, one in trigonometry and the other in honesty. I hope you will pass them both. If you must fail one, fail trigonometry. There are many good people in the world who can’t pass trig, but there are no good people in the world who cannot pass the examination of honesty.”

The same test applies to each of us daily. The choices are as Joshua said in Joshua 24:15, “Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” In real life it is ‘pass-fail.’

 God, Let us pass Your tests daily. Amen

Bro. Bill

In GOD we Trust!
