Joe’s Monday Motivation today comes from a daily devotional book he got as a Christmas gift – and today’s topic is creation:

“When times get bad, people cry out for help.
    They cry for relief from being kicked around,
But never give God a thought when things go well,
    when God puts spontaneous songs in their hearts,
When God sets out the entire creation as a science classroom,
    using birds and beasts to teach wisdom.

Job 35:9-11

In a world where such glory exists, why do we continually allow worldly concerns to occupy so much of our attention? Let God be our glory, and indeed, when we find ourselves most down, He will lift our heads up and show us all the wonders of His magnificent creation.

Todd’s devotional is called ‘The Bell,’ written by Evan Morgan, and addresses how we handle failure. Read more by clicking here.

Name a reason you might not leave your house all day:
1- bad weather
2- illness/being sick
3- watching TV
4- I have the day off!
5- waiting for a repairman
6- I’m too tired.

Congratulations to Jan from Apple Valley, who guessed the top two answers and won the $5 gift certificate to Everlasting Cup.

Thanks for listening!
