Daily Devotion from Torah Family
The start of a new year is a great time to begin reading or listening to the Scriptures. Torah Portions is a perfect platform for accomplishing the blessing of reading/listening through the Bible in about a year.
Sign up for short daily devotions from a biblical ministry.

‘Sunday’ is never mentioned in Scripture. Not one time. And, for those who want to challenge, previously on this blog, I offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who could provide a reference where God changed the day from the seventh to some other day. Still no takers….
4″ It shall come to pass in the latter days
that the mountain of the house of the Lord
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and it shall be lifted up above the hills;
and peoples shall flow to it,
2 and many nations shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,[a]
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
3 He shall judge between many peoples,
and shall decide for strong nations far away;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore;
4 but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree,
and no one shall make them afraid,
for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.
5 For all the peoples walk
each in the name of its god,
but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God
forever and ever.”
Before the American Industrial Revolution (1820-1870), most people lived and worked at home as families. New technologies such as the cotton gin precipitated a massive move of people from farms to cities to work in factories. While this did reduce the time, energy, and money spent on products, it also split up families, taking husbands, wives, father, mothers, and children into separate factory working facilities. Somewhere along the line, someone decided young children shouldn’t work in dangerous situations or for long hours and so child labour laws were enacted and eventually enforced. Of course, as governments do, those laws have gotten so out of hand that you can’t hire your 15-year-old neighbor boy to mow your lawn, but that’s another soap box.
However, the Small Business Administration reports that half of American businesses are home-based now. Not only that, but many even have their stores, shops, or galleries as part of or attached to their homes. Now that really cuts down on the commute! All this is exciting news, perhaps families can regroup and start working together and building successful and productive income streams once again.
The irony is that technology moved people away from home during the Industrial Revolution and now technology is providing the opportunity to move back home again. Sweet!
Ideas for home-based businesses:
Senior Care Services
Repossession and Debt Collection
Mechanical & Tire Repairman
Pet Grooming (home and/or mobile)
Salon (nails, hair, face)
Landscaping – Lawnmowing – brush cutting and removal – sawn lumber – firewood – mulch
Nearly any type of retail or online business – depending on location
Let’s keep adding to this list for ideas! It’s time Americans get back into the entrepreneurial spirit! We won’t all be financially rich, but families and communities will grow stronger – when government (both state and federal) start backing off the regulations (and rescinding old ones) which hinder economic growth and entrepreneurial endeavors – we can all start pushing back from the government trough.
Well, speaking of work, this farm gal started at 3:30 am cleaning house and just now got in very late from building fence and replacing a flat marine battery for the solar energizer – I’m POOPED!
