BEAT DEVOTIONS
Y2.2K
I remember the fear of the Y2K computer issue that would occur on January 1, 2000. The US spent over $300 billion to prevent what they predicted to be a major catastrophic problem. Now 20 years later, we are even more depended on electronic devices. There are currently 5.15 billion people (66.6% of the world population) with mobile electronic devices. In the US, 78% of homes have a computer and 37% of adults use a computer while at work with almost 100% of students use electronic devices at school. How would an unpredicted issue like Y2K affect us today? The average person spends over 6 hours a day looking at an electronic screen. “The modern version of fasting is not doing without food but doing without a mobile electronic device.”
50 Years of Commitment
Except for family farms or family owned businesses, it is very rare that someone celebrates 50 years of employment with the same employer. It is very rare that people celebrate 50 years of being in the same community. It is very rare that people celebrate 50 years of being married. It is sad to say that I know a number of persons who have given up their service to the Lord. God has given you an eternal commitment. What will your record of commitment be when you see the Lord? “A great person leaves a legacy of commitment and not cash.”
Impeachment
Now we are experiencing another presidential impeachment. No matter what the outcome, our government and our citizens have become greatly divided, opinionated, stubborn, disrespectful, self-centered, untrusted and disillusioned. ”In God we trust” has become an obsolete and offensive saying. If Bible reading and prayer were a part of the process, it would be peaceful and truthful with positive result.
 
What is Love?  
February 14 is known as  St. Valentine's Day. It is a day on which people express their love to the person who means the most to them. Our English language is so weak regarding the meaning of love. What does it mean to love God with all your heart, soul and mind? What does it mean to love your neighbor as yourself?
It’s A Wonderful Life
During this past Christmas season, there were a number of classic Christmas movies on TV.
My favorite Christmas movie is the 1946 “It’s A Wonderful Life” Many of us may have also said or thought, “I wish I was never born.” But, in reality, this is the best time that God can work through us. “It can only be a wonderful life when you surrender your life to Christ.”
The Unseen Enemy
Today, we are facing a pandemic, Coronavirus Covid-19. As of March 18, there was been 218,642 cases and 8,942 deaths with 125,317 currently infected patients worldwide and the numbers are climbing hourly. Out of caution and not fear, I am working at home and keeping limited contact with the world. There is also another unseen enemy which is Satan. We all must be more cautious and fearful of him, for he has destroyed more lives than any health issue, war, famine, or disaster. His effects are eternal. “Satan is like the flu. You cannot see him but his ways are devastating for you.”
