January 27


All riches have their origin in mind. Wealth is in ideas – not money.

~Robert Collier (1885–1950), American motivational author



Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.

~Ayn Rand (1905–1982), Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter, known for her two best-selling novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism.

January 27
Inventors and Discoverers

So we went to Atari and said, “Hey, we’ve got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we’ll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we’ll come work for you.” And they said, “No.” So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, “Hey, we don’t need you. You haven’t got through college yet.”
~Steve Jobs, cofounder of Apple Computer

I was elated, ecstatic and extremely surprised that we were successful.
~Neil Armstrong (b. 1930), American Astronaut, the first man to set foot on the moon.

January 27: “How Soon Hath Time” by John Milton

How Soon Hath Time by John Milton


Stolen on his wing my three and twentieth year!

My hasting days fly on with full career,

But my late spring no bud or blossom shew’th.

Perhaps my semblance might deceive the truth,

That I to manhood am arrived so near,

And inward ripeness doth much less appear,

That some more timely-happy spirits endu’th.

Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow,

It shall be still in strictest measure even

To that same lot, however mean or high,

Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heaven;

All is, if I have grace to use it so,

As ever in my great Taskmaster’s eye.

Day’s Short Christian Poems

Day’s Short Christian Poems

Discover what
God has concealed
And you will see
The Truth revealed.

Come back to Christ,
Surrender pride:
Let Him control
And run your rides.

The grass will fade
And friends will bail,
But God is Love,
Which never fails.

To decimate
A country well,
Get rid of God;
Let Satan dwell.

Instruct the world
To work with God
Pull shovels out
And break the sod.

In history
We see black deeds,
Yet God will wait
To pull the weeds.

The human heart,
Deceitful dirt,
Will twist and turn,
Stay and desert.

When I go home
To heaven, see,
I’m gonna be
Forever free.

You can’t please God
By chasing sin;
Turn back to Him
And then you’ll win.

The harvest, great,
The workers, few,
Ask God to send
The workers through.
Mt. 9:37-38

Put faith in God–
Your life will change,
Though at the start
You might feel strange.

Christ Jesus is
The one they need;
But they won’t see
And won’t pay heed.

The highest king,
The lowest slave,
Through Jesus Christ
Both can be saved.

What men believe
Will shape their fate;
Where God is Love,
Men give up hate.

A Child has come
To save our souls
But oh how we
Want full control.

To be a star
Seek Jesus’ face
And you will light
The human race.

Do not forsake
Your wife of youth
Seek righteousness,
Peace, love and truth.

January 27

He will stop punishing you and treat you with kindness. He may have scattered you to the farthest countries on earth, but he will bring you back to the land that had belonged to your ancestors and make you even more successful and powerful than they ever were.
–Deuteronomy 30:3-5

Your strong faith in the Lord is like a breath of new life. How can we possibly thank God enough for all the happiness you have brought us? Day and night we sincerely pray that we will see you again and help you to have an even stronger faith.
–1 Thessalonians 3:8-10
