The Overcomers

MAY 14

MATTHEW 6:3_let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.

The world operates on a right handed system. That’s just how it is. When a table is set the glass goes at the top right of the plate. If you are a lefty you move it or get used to reaching over when you want a drink.

When lefty children begin kindergarten they may become more aware of how right-handed the classroom is set up. They adjust.

Left-handers learn to be overcomers.

The Bible gives history lessons of some fascinating lefties. After eighteen years of being oppressed by the Moabites, God raised up left-handed Ehud, to deliver Israel. Check out Judges 3:15-30.

Then there is Judges 20:16 (KJV), “Among all this people there were seven hundred chosen men lefthanded; every one could sling stones at an hair breadth, and not miss.”

There were the ambidextrous men among David’s mighty men, I Chronicles 12:2 (KJV), “They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a bow, even of Saul’s brethern of Benjamin.”

There is a reason for this lefty lesson. Don’t miss tomorrow!

PRAYER

Mighty Warrior, I want to be an overcomer in the world. I want to walk and live in the radical teachings of Jesus. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.

Christ overcame the world—He will help me!
