A Common Tailorbird (Orthotomus sutorius) spotted at the herb garden at Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 12 June 2021. It was part of a group feeding there, and not paying any attention to me.

A devotional started out by saying,
> Weekly church attendance gives you a designated time to worship God. This is fulfilling the greatest commandment to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
True. (I'm not a fan of the phrase "weekly church attendance," but we'll let it slide.)
And also fulfilling in part the second greatest commandment, as well as fulfilling the great purpose for which the Christian obeyed the truth in order to purify his soul (read 1 Peter 1.22).
Many #Christians know about BibleGateway, but I was reminded this morning why https://netbible.org/ remains my preferred translation and favorite study tool: translator's notes, integrated Greek, and while not as many other comparative translations as BibleGateway, it's got some very good ones.
If you want to really dig into nuances and do some real study on a passage, you might want to give it a look. #Bible
> Time is a talent given us by God, and it is misspent and lost when not employed according to his design. If we have lost our time heretofore, we must double our diligence for the future. Of that time which thousands on a dying bed would gladly redeem at the price of the whole world, how little do men think, and to what trifles they daily sacrifice it! People are very apt to complain of bad times; it were well if that stirred them more to redeem time. – Matthew Henry
