“Therefore, let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother's way.”
Today, as I continue to work out my salvation, let me not forget the oath of Christianity, to seek the welfare of my brother above my own. If I do this, I will live my life as an example and not an obstruction to my brother’s way.
“For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, from which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
[1 Timothy 6:10]
Today, greediness could rear its ugly head as I am faced with opportunities to make a fast buck, or participate in an unethical way. Let me not forget to walk in a spirit of excellence, shunning the mere ideas of evilness.
“Eyes have not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for them who love Him.”
[1 Corinthians 2:9]
Today, there may be moments when I feel as if my life is a failure, and want run off in some crazy direction. Help me to understand in those moments of discouragement that could negatively impact the rest of my life.
“For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.”
[1 Peter 2:20-21]
Today, when others step on my hope, beat down my ideas, or want to hold back my dream, I may want to get frustrated and strike out. Help me to rein in my emotions.
