For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. (KJV)
Who do you try to please the most? Is it your peers that you live with each day, or the God that gave you life? Is it your employer that pays your salary, or the One that paid the ultimate price so that you might live? Who you try to impress speaks volumes of your character and what values have priority in your life. Following the teachings of Jesus about honesty, fairness, and loyalty will endear you to those you know or work for. If it doesn’t, then maybe you are in the wrong kind of company.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit help us discern the character and intentions of others and show us how to be more honest and forthright with those we associate with. Do not let deceit or evasiveness enter into our life. May we ever follow the teachings of Jesus so that we might present ourselves worthy of friendship and trust.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ...Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
