TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (BNC) — For 20 years David W. Grubb published his “Grace for Your Spirit” devotionals on the Internet. Over recent months I was one of his regular readers. Starting with an underlined Bible text, David wrote a paragraph of well-expressed explanation and application.

David worked with the Northwest congregation in Terre Haute for 34 years.

David’s last devotional was posted Oct. 12, one day before he passed away. We asked on Twitter about his whereabouts, and Adam Cozort replied that he died Oct. 13 after falling and hitting his head.

His obituary is posted here. It mentioned that “He was a Director at Camp Wabashi for many years and served young people throughout his life.”

The devotional site states that “The daily devotional was started during a daily radio program in Philippians. The last verse, Phil. 4:23 asks for the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ to be with our spirit. When we have His grace in our spirit, we will always have grace for others.”

David’s last devotional is below.

But God said to him, “You fool! This very night your soul is required of you, and now who will own what you have prepared?”  So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”   Luke 12:20-21
Here is a parable about a man who was greatly blessed, but was mistaken about who blessed him.  He mistook his bankbook for his Bible, his body for his soul, and time for eternity.  He measured all his wealth, condition, and time available by the world, instead of by God.  Our blessing are only for us to use for a while.  Then we all must go back, and our possession go on to someone else.  Let’s not make the same mistakes as he did.
