David's Daily Devotion for September 13

September 13, 2023 - Good Morning! It's Wednesday, September 13.

In 122 AD, the emperor of Rome was named Hadrian. On September 13th of that year, he began to build a wall across Britain, the northern border of his empire. It was over 80 miles long and came to be known as Hadrian's Wall. That was almost 2000 years ago, and some of that wall is still there.

The Romans were very good at building things - roads, coliseums, walls. They knew how to build things to last. I had a guy build me a back porch five years ago, and it's already showing some signs of wear. I'm thinking that that guy doesn't have any Romans in his family tree.

We are all looking for things that last - porches, promises, relationships. These ancient words of the Bible, around for more than 2000 years, speak to us today. 

"Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but You, O Lord, are the same, and Your years have no end." Psalm 102:25.

Meet you back here tomorrow,
Bro. David
