Day 11 – Made Beds
As I was making the bed this morning I thought to be thankful. Thankful for many things reflected in the making of a bed, ours in particular. And mingled in all those thankful thoughts was this Scripture text.
John 5: 8 Jesus said unto him, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” via John 5 KJ21 – After this there was a feast of the – Bible Gateway.
The making of a bed indicates its sleepers have arisen. That one action alone is brimming with reasons to give thanks. Such as health and well-being to actually get out of bed, pull up the covers, fluff the pillows, smooth out the comforter and pile on the animals. 🙂 Blessings, privileges, graces, are just about endless that come to mind making one’s bed.
And then the Scripture. Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. Don’t you know the man who had been crippled for 38 years was jubilant to make his bed. He was later found in the temple.
Let us rise from sleep, make our beds and our lives count for JESUS. He is so worthy!
Our love to you all. Plan on enjoying the weekend, investing in activities that will earn eternal reward.
Colossians 3:23-25 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not unto men,
24 knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance, for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done, and there is no respect of persons.
