A Teachable Heart

Psalm 143:10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:10       

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.  May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.       

God loves us so much that He gave us commands to obey that will lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction. If left to our own devices, we would stumble and fall into a life of sin. But God had mercy on us and sent the Holy Spirit to guide us onto the straight and narrow path that leads to God. In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, we must have a teachable heart, which goes hand in hand with humility. We must have a willingness to learn and to receive instruction, which sometimes comes in the form of correction. Trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will never be led astray.

God’s Ways

Psalm 119 15

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:15

I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate your ways.

A precept is a command or a general rule intended to regulate behavior or thought.  Instead of focusing on your problems or things that upset, disappoint or annoy you think about the way God wants you to deal with them. Think about how He wants you to respond. Let God’s precepts direct you in the way you should go. God’s ways are pure and good and they are always better than our own. Keep God’s Word in your heart and let it guide your steps through life.

Rich in Good Deeds

1 Timothy 6 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 6:18

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

 

In this world money comes and money goes. If you want to be truly rich in life you must do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need.  Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord. Visit the sick, feed the hungry, help others to know God. These kinds of things make a real difference. Give, serve, love, these are the kinds of sacrifices that please God.
