Daily Devotional for April 8
April 8 Luke 4:1-13
When I took this job
They never said
About Mrs. Talbot's seductive
Or what to say to Julie Wilson
When she lost the second baby
(By her boyfriend).
What about David Martin,
Who can't (?) keep his hands off his niece?
No one questions my discretion
With discretionary funds
Or suspects my midnight visitors.
Is there someone
Who would hear my own confession
And re-subscribe to trust?
We deal every day with our own temptations no less than with
those of others. My prayer is to be delivered from my own,
of course. But even more, I pray that my struggles not blind
me to the chance to help others learn from their own. And
that my struggles not cause some to walk further from you
than they already were before being in my company. Please,
protect people from any mistaken advice or influence I may
offer from my areas of blindness.
