TEXT: ESTHER 6:1-10
MEMORY VERSE: “And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus”(ESTHER 6:2).
Robert G. LeTourneau, the notable American Christian industrialist, who manufactured almost 70% of the earthmoving machines and vehicles used during World War 2,was good at note-taking.
On a certain occasion, as he was on a private jet flight, he slept off. However, he sometimes woke up, jotted down things in his notepad, and returned to sleep. When fully awake, he never remembered jotting down anything.
Such jottings helped this great inventor. Note-taking aids students’ concentration and makes permanent the ideas, facts and concepts discussed in class.
Mordecai’s act of loyalty probably would not have been remembered and rewarded by the king, but for the written record. Note-taking is important for youths at school, in the Church and everywhere.
Take notes! Do not operate phones or chat during services. Obtain a notepad and pen for jotting today. During your ‘quiet time’ as well as Church services, ensure you take notes that can be helpful to you in the future.
QUOTE: Obtain a notepad and pen for jotting.
CHALLENGE: Much is lost by not taking notes.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to concentrate in Church.
