“Fortune Cookie Devotions”: a thoughtful devotional. “Fortune Cookie Devotions” is the creation of published author Jeremy J. Smith, an ordained pastor and married father who nurtures a passion for Bible study, particularly the Hebrew Old Testament.
Smith shares in a devotion on patience, “It is likely safe to assert that our culture has an issue with patience. Drive through ‘fast food’ never seems quite fast enough. Checkout lines are unbearable if there is more than one person ahead in line. Driving becomes frustrating when stuck behind a slow-moving vehicle. If you have ever stood in front of your microwave and opened the door when there were seconds left (because you just could not wait any longer), or you have honked your horn at the person in front of you the instant the light turned green, then you understand.
God calls His people to show patience. Here in 1 Thessalonians, we are called to minister to others in three specific ways. We are to warn those who are idle or disruptive. We are to offer comfort to those who are discouraged, in their time of need. And we are to help the weak. These are some of the ways we can minister to those around us. Then comes the last line in that verse, be patient with everyone.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jeremy J. Smith’s new book is a wonderful collection of meditations to accompany Bible study and quiet time.
Pastor Smith insightfully expands on each day’s “fortune cookie” with wit, heart, and a large helping of fruits of the Spirit.
