Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 122

Oil on the Beard

Psalm 133:1-2

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

When I think of oil running down my beard, I think about washing my face, because obviously I’ve been a little sloppy at the dinner table. Olive oil is pretty slick stuff that doesn’t always behave. Did you know there are verses in the old testament that speak of oil running down the beard? And it’s a picture of God’s blessing, the unity of his people. Listen to Psalm 133, verses 1 and 2: “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down the beard, even Aaron’s beard.” May God anoint you with the oil of joy today.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 86

Spiritual Food

Matthew 4:4

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

So how was your breakfast this morning? Maybe you don’t eat breakfast – how about lunch, or dinner? Fact is, you eat everyday. We wouldn’t think about not eating, especially since our body craves food. If we didn’t eat, we would become weak and sickly, and even die. You wouldn’t think of not eating.

Did you know you have a spirit that needs feeding, too? The very best spiritual food is the word of God. I eat scripture every day. When I miss a day, something doesn’t seem right. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that precedes out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). I encourage you to eat God’s word daily, my friend.
