Our Daily Bread
As we entered a town in Australia, we were greeted by a sign that declared: “We welcome all who are seeking refuge and asylum.” This kind of welcome seems to resonate with the Old Testament concept of the cities of refuge. In the Old Testament era, cities of refuge (Num. 35:6) were established to be a safe haven for people who had accidentally killed someone and were needing protection. God had the people establish such cities to provide that refuge.Posted: August 1, 2014, 1:00 am

2 Samuel 11:1-5
There was none more mighty than David. As a lad he had faithfully protected his family's sheep from both the lion and the bear, then astounded the nation of Israel when he felled the giant Goliath. He proved himself a valiant warrior, and with David as command-in-chief there was no army more feared that Israel's. He was a national symbol for truth, righteousness, justice, and compassion. He was a musician, songwriter, and visionary. That was the mighty David, the anointed one, a man after God's own heart.

Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pm"Go away, Chase!" stormed Kayla as her little brother rode his bicycle through the chalk pictures she and her friend Alisha were drawing on the sidewalk in front of their apartment. Chase laughed and zoomed down the street.
"He's an awful pest, isn't he?" asked Alisha. Kayla nodded as she colored over the marks the tires had made. Alisha made a face. "I don't know when I've seen such a bad kid," she continued. "Probably never!"
"Chase isn't all that bad," replied Kayla.
"He is, too. He should be grounded for life or something!" grumbled Alisha.
Kayla quickly came to the defense of her brother. "Chase just likes to tease," she said. "He's a good kid most of the time."
"I can't stand him," Alisha replied. "Oh, look, here he comes. If he's going to bother us again, I'll . . ." She was interrupted when . . . CRASH! The front tire of Chase's bike caught in a piece of loose cement, and the bike flipped over on its side. Chase fell with it, his foot tangled in the spokes. He started to cry.
"It serves him right," said Alisha. "Crybaby!"
"Alisha!" exclaimed Kayla. "Chase is hurt."
"Too bad!" Alisha turned to go. "I'm leaving!"
"Come on, Chase,"said Kayla, and she helped her brother into the house as Alisha stormed off.
"Alisha's mean!" Kayla fumed as Mom washed and bandaged Chase's scrapes.
"You often criticize Chase yourself," said Mom, "so I'm a bit surprised you stood up for him now."
Kayla shrugged. "He's family--he's my brother," she said. "I love him."
"Good. I'm glad you defended him," said Mom. "But remember that you and Alisha are both Christians, so that makes her your sister in the Lord. You're both part of God's family."
"Does that mean I have to love and forgive her--like I do Chase?" Kayla asked.
Mom smiled. "It doesn't mean you have to listen to her criticize your brother," she said, "but it does mean you should be patient and forgive her like Jesus forgave you. The Bible says love covers a multitude of sins."
"Well . . ." Kayla hesitated. "I'll try," she decided. "I guess I do love her, too."
How About You?
Do you love all of God's family--your brothers and sisters in the Lord? The Bible says love covers a multitude of sins. Jesus invites you to trust in Him and let His perfect love and sacrifice cover all the wrong you have done. He also gave a command to love as He does. He said, "Love one another as I have loved you." Do you do that? Are you willing to overlook differences of opinion? To forgive when you feel hurt? To simply love others the way Jesus loves you?
Today's Key Verse:
Above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins." (1 Peter 4:8)
Today's Key Thought:
Love all members of God's family

Grandpa tells the kids a story from his childhood to explain why Johnny is such an unhappy old lizard.
Do Christians dress differently than non-Christians? Time for a Bible quiz on clothes!
Question 1: Who was famous for wearing clothes made out of camel's hair? (Mark 1:6)
Question 2: After she died, people gathered together to show Peter all the robes and clothing she had made and given away to poor people around her. (Acts 10: 39)
Question 3: Whose father loved him so much that he bought a richly decorated robe just for him? (Genesis 37: 3)
Question 4: Who told a story about a wedding banquet at which a man who wasn't wearing wedding clothes was tied up and thrown outside the banquet into the darkness? (Matt. 22: 1-14)
How did you do? John the Baptist was famous not only for his camel-hair clothes, but also for preparing the way for Jesus. Dorcas (or Tabitha) was famous for her sewing and acts of kindness-so famous that people made Peter come to her town when she died. Not only did Peter come, he raised her from the dead. Jacob loved his son Joseph so much, he bought the fancy coat so that everyone would know who Joseph was. Jesus told the story about the wedding banquet to teach the people about the kingdom of God.
So what do clothes have to do with being a Christian? A lot! Colossians 3:12 says because we are "God's chosen people," this means that we are "holy and dearly loved." So how do we react to being chosen and loved by God? We want to look and act like God. We want to reflect God to others. How? By "clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." By our "clothes," others will see God!
There is usually a reason that a person is unhappy and mean. There is something in their past, or their present that is making them unhappy, and they take it out on the people around them. That's what happened with Johnny. He lost his pet bird and it made him an angry boy and a bitter man. He was angry with God and this caused him to be angry and impatient with other people too.
Our natural first response when bad things happen is often bitterness and anger. But it doesn't have to be that way. We can train ourselves in the Spirit so that our first response is trust in God's goodness, which enables God's character to shine through us. Then the clothes of God-the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience-will fit us nicely.
In Jesus we are dearly loved by God. That knowledge needs to penetrate us to our very bones. When it does, we are able to show others the love of God and it will be so attractive that they cannot help but be drawn to Jesus. Liz and his friends bought a new songbird for Johnny as a gesture of love. Hopefully, this loving act will result in giving Johnny a new song in his heart, the song of a child dearly loved by his Father in Heaven.
