THOUGHT: It’s tragic to know the 23 Psalm but not know the Shepherd.

If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two, If He just — dropped by — unexpectedly, I wonder what you’d do. When you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door, With arms outstretched in welcome to your Heavenly Visitor? Or, would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in, Or hide some magazines, and put the Bible where they’d been? Would you turn off the TV and hope He hadn’t heard, And wish you had not uttered that last loud, dirty word? Could you just let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?  And I wonder if the Savior spent a day or two with you, Would you go right on doing the things you always do? Would you go right on saying the things you always say? Would your family conversation keep its usual pace, And would you remember at each meal to say a table grace? And if you went out drinkin’ with your friends,  Would you mind if Jesus went along? Would you be glad to have Him stay forever, on and on, Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone? 

 Prayer: Lord Jesus, please be my Invited Guest in my life today — and every day. May I so live that there would be nothing  which I might be ashamed to have you see. Amen.
