Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


A man's life consisteth not
in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the
riches of many wicked.--Better [is] little with the fear of the
LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.--Godliness with
contentment is great gain. . . . Having food and raiment let us
be therewith content.

Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food
convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny [thee], and say, Who
[is] the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name
of my God [in vain].--Give us this day our daily bread.

Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye
shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not
the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?--When I sent
you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing?
And they said, Nothing.--[Let your] conversation [be] without
covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for
he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Lu 12:15 Ps 37:16 Pr 15:16 1Ti 6:6,8 Pr 30:8,9 Mt 6:11,25
Lu 22:35 Heb 13:5


It is the spirit that quickeneth.

The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [was
made] a quickening spirit.--That which is born of the flesh is
flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.--Not by
works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his
mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing
of the Holy Ghost.

If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin;
but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness. But if the
Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you,
he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your
mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of
God.--Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but
alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
