Daily Devotional Nov. 28, 2022

“The Lord gave these instructions to Moses: “Command the people of Israel to remove from the camp anyone who has a skin disease or a discharge, or who has become ceremonially unclean by touching a dead person” (Numbers 5:1-2, NLT).

     This command is a foreign concept to many of us. The idea that a person can become “ceremonially unclean” as a consequence of a skin disease or by touching a corpse seems antiquated. Yet such was once a prevalent understanding within Judaism.

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you” (Colossians 3:13, NIV).


     Earlier this week, Chocolate and Chip each received a pardon from the President of the United States. Neither turkey appeared appreciative of the mercy he had received. Both appeared to be in a foul mood.


     Tomorrow, families across the country will be setting down together for the annual Thanksgiving feast. Unfortunately for many, the bird on the table won’t be the only turkey in the room. You know the individual. The one who bastes another unsuspecting family member for their perceived shortcomings.

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son,                      and they will call him Immanuel                (which means ‘God with us’ )” Matthew 1:23, NIV).


     My daughter is a creative soul. This morning she texted me a photograph of a Christmas tree she crafted at work. The design is fashioned out of a cover band, thumbtacks, and an IV needle. The tree now sets conspicuously atop the nursing station around which she works.

“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.  4  Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy” (Philippians 1:3-4, NLT).

     Barbara Johnson is one of my favorite Christian authors. Barb tells of the time she had overslept and was late for work. Then, several things happened at the office to contribute to her agitation. By the time she reached the bus stop for the trip home, her stomach was tied into knots.
