“Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. Now I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you”  (1 Corinthians 11:1-2, ESV).

     Happy “Cow Hug Day”! That is if you are a citizen of India. Cows traditionally are considered sacred by Hindus. The Animal Welfare Board declared February 14 as Cow Hug Day because the bovine is known as the “backbone of Indian culture and rural economy.”

There will be no Daily Devotions this week (Feb. 6 – 10). Devotions will resume on Monday, Feb. 13.

I pray you will reread a few of your favorite devotions to see how the Holy Spirit is speaking to you right now.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:2, BSB).


     Imitation is the highest form of flattery, as the saying goes. Just ask Punxsutawney Phil. The infamous Pennsylvania rodent no longer can lay claim as the only four-legged weather forecaster.

     Enter Bee Cave Bob. Bee Cave Bob is an armadillo that has predicted the seasons in Texas for the past twelve years. By the way, why did the chicken cross the road? To prove to the armadillo it could be done.

“Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly”.  (Proverbs 14:29, ESV)


     Slowpoke. It’s the name my mother assigned me when I dawdled. When Mom called your name, she expected a swift response.

     In 2021, the South Carolina senate passed the “Slowpoke Bill.” The law requires drivers in the left-hand land to yield when another vehicle moves in behind them. A new bill presently is pending that will increase the fines for violators up to $100. So much for the idea that life moves more slowly in the South.

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10, ESV).


     The developmental psychologist, Erik Erikson, once wrote:

                  “Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence.
                   We need each other, and the sooner we learn that the better for us all.”


Nature has learned this lesson. Consider the sequoia redwood tree.

“But the Lord God called to the man, `Where are you?’”  (Genesis 3:9, NIV).


I feel the Earth move under my feet

I feel the sky tumbling down

I feel my heart start to trembling

Whenever you’re around.
