Read the Bible in a Year This morning read Genesis 10--12 We Never Know the Outcome of Our Works It was just over a year ago that the tsunami hit the nations of the Indian Ocean. The Savage Street Church of Christ, with which I work, sent over $12,000 to southern India. While we had hoped that good things would happen, many more good things happened than we ever anticipated. Not only have people been helped with their material needs, but also many have been converted and thirty-four congregations have started in the area. Then when those people heard of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, they took up a collection and sent it to a church America. That really touched my heart. Here is another way of looking at the far-reaching results of our works. In Genesis 10:11 Moses wrote of Nimrod, From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah... (Ge. 10:11, NKJV) We read of the beginning of Nineveh towards the beginning of the Bible, and we continue to read of it clear over in the Book of Nahum. The city lasted over 2400 years before the Lord finally destroyed it. Nimrod had no idea that a city he built would last so long and become a mighty empire, but eventually become so wicked that God would have to destroy it. What are you doing? How do you treat people? Where do you spend your money? You may never know the outcome of your efforts, for good or bad, until you meet up with them again at the Judgment.
