- Today’s devotional
I’m sure that a lot of us can think of the daily choices me make
regarding our meals and their relationship to God’s high standards. He
doesn’t want us to enjoy the suffering of any of his creatures,
especially when our survival does not depend on it. Our daily lives are
the most powerful witness of God’s compassion and love for His creation.
Proverbs 14:34 - Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a
disgrace to any people.
Thoughts on today's verse: Wow, what an indictment. When we
vote according to our pocketbook more than character and when we excuse
the indiscretions, infidelities, and illegalities in the leaders of both
political parties, we have reached a very sad state indeed! But before
we rant and rave about the sad state of morality in our public
officials, let's make sure we're honest in our own daily lives, that we
don't say cruel things about others, that we remain faithful to our
marriage and our purity vows to God, and let's make sure that we expect
of ourselves higher standards than we do of others.
Prayer: God, you are not only the Almighty, you are holy!
Holy, Holy, Holy are you, the LORD God Almighty. May the whole earth be
filled with your glory and may that glory be shown in what I do and say.
Forgive me for my own sin and hypocrisy. Bless me with purity and
holiness as I pledge my life to your glory. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
