What Does Your Life Say?

Today's Scripture

"In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:16 NIV.

Thoughts for Today

No Fear printed across t-shirts. Bumper stickers that read Question Authority. Television programs flaunting rebellion. Movies that trivialize God. … Sadly, these are all signs of our times.

Respect, reverence and fear have become distasteful words in our society. A lack of concern or respect for each other or for anyone in authority has led to rebellion, hatred and even bloodshed.

A lack of respect for mankind and other distorted attitudes can be traced to a lack of reverence toward God. To reverence the Lord means to treat God and his message with awe.

Consider this …

What are some ways we can show our respect and reverence to God? Noah did it by persevering in obedience even in very difficult circumstances. We too need to put God first in our lives … to strive to please him in all we do … to have regular devotional times with him … to live our day-to-day lives in a way that honors him.

People who don't know Jesus often judge him by what they see in his followers. What do they learn about Jesus from your life?

Prayer : "Our Loving Heavenly Father, help me to consistently live in such a way that others will sense your love and will honor you and want to know you. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
