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.
Verse of the Day: Micah 6:8
What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
God wants you to treat others fairly, behave morally righteous, show compassion and forgiveness even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle, live modestly, not thinking too highly of yourself. You don’t always have to behave the way you feel, but you should always behave in a way that pleases God.
Verse of the Day: Galatians 1:10
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
We all fall into the trap of trying to please people, especially the people we love. But the truth is, the only one we need to please is God. Don’t be influenced by people who don’t know God, instead be strong in what you believe and why you believe it. By living a life that is focused on God’s truth and is pleasing to Him we will attract the right people into our lives.
