Keep No Sin in Your Heart

Psalm 66 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 66:18

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my voice in prayer.

 

We all fall short of the glory of God.  We are not perfect but what we do when we fail God makes all the difference. Put aside your pride, acknowledge your sin and turn from it. Don’t let sin come between you and God. Don’t let sin destroy your fellowship with Him. Humble yourself before the Lord and confess your sins, ask for forgiveness and He will hear your prayers.

Love is Patient

1 Corinthians 13 4

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 13:4

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

 

No one is perfect and everyone has faults and quirks, but when we show genuine love and patience we overlook the things that frustrate and possibly even annoy us. When we are patient and kind we try our best to focus on the wonderful qualities of the people we love. Just like our heavenly Father is patient with us we should also be patient with those we love.

Stop Comparing Yourself

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 6:4

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.

 

Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to anyone else. God created you and you are unique.  If you are comparing yourself to someone who is doing better than you, you could fall into the sin of envy.  If you are comparing yourself to someone who is worse off than you, you could fall into the sin of pride.   God wants you to be the best you can be by following Christ’s example.  Live your life according to God’s Word and you will do well.

Proverbs 14:3

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 14:3

A fool’s mouth lashes out with pride, but the lips of the wise protect them.

 

Arrogance, conceit, smugness, egotism, and vanity are only a few of the ways pride shows itself.    Think before you speak and don’t let your mouth bring you trouble.
