Verse of the Day: Exodus 20:12
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
If you are blessed to have your mother in your life, honor her as the Lord commands. Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here. If there are grievances between you, ask God to help you forgive each other. If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 11:29
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
If your life feels out of control, in turmoil or you’re feeling angry, Jesus is the answer. Jesus was a great example of how to be gentle and humble. Gentleness = kind, mild in temperament; Humbleness = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance. Follow the example of Jesus Christ and you will find rest for your soul.
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.
This is what God wants, for you to treat others fairly, behaving morally righteous, showing compassion and forgiveness even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle, and 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.
