Devotional Guide, Today’s Reading – Friday, September 30, 2022


Text: “Who will render to every man according to his deeds…But glory, honour and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile. For there is no respect of persons with God.” – Romans 2:6,10,11.

Comment: God Almighty gives to everyone his just rewards. Those who promise several people that they will give them high returns on their deposits or give them jobs, but soon vanish into thin air with the deposits; or become rich by not paying those who have worked for them, knowing that their victims do not have the means to compel them to pay their debts, should desist from the practice. See Jeremiah 22:13; Leviticus 19:13.


Also, those who dupe their neighbours in the name of God will pay dearly for it. Apostle Peter wrote in prophecy, “And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not…” – 2 Peter 2:1-6.


Human beings should know that they are mortals and humble themselves before God. King Solomon said “yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.” – Ecclesiastes 8:11-13.
