WHO DO YOU LET LEAD YOU?
Big question huh.....Something to think about in life.
Titus 2:1-8 New Living Translation (NLT)
Promote Right Teaching
As for you, Titus, promote the kind of living that reflects wholesome teaching. 2 Teach the older men to exercise self-control, to be worthy of respect, and to live wisely. They must have sound faith and be filled with love and patience.
3 Similarly, teach the older women to live in a way that honors God. They must not slander others or be heavy drinkers. Instead, they should teach others what is good. 4 These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, 5 to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God.
6 In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely. 7 And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. 8 Teach the truth so that your teaching can’t be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us.
WOW The Bible is filled with wisdom in doing the right thing. It's not always easy to listen or to act upon what is right. Sometimes it simply is painful to do something you know is right. There will be times when you might need to say you were wrong or you made a mistake. The Bible says we have all sinned and fallen short ~ Romans 3:23
Once we ask forgiveness from God, it is done. He forgives and forgets but often times there are consequences to our actions. Those actions can produce much pain and sorrow. Much regret and feelings of failing God and others. But God isn't here to remind us of mistakes. He is here to remind us for his love and goodness. He is here to remind us just how far he has brought us. Seeing the good in one day and in your own life. Your example shines with the love of God.
FOLLOW THE LEADER ~
Let us not forget that we are all human. We have each made mistakes and may make mistakes in the future. God remains the same and forgives us right where we are in life. This makes my heart so happy. We are forgiven no matter what people might say or think. A love begins with God and it continues to grow as we read the word of God and act accordingly with kindness. Doing the right thing is just right. Yes, I will follow the leader named God and his only son Jesus. I choose to believe big and choose to live by example the best I can.
Daily we have choices, desires and wants in life. Giving God some praise for all things we do have and asking largely to grow deeper into God daily. A peaceful mind during the day and night. A life filled with mistakes, desires and hope. I choose to hope in this day and see life through eyes of faith. I hope you will join me today in giving God some praise for all the things you do have in life. Also, to pray and hope big for things you need in life. God answers prayers and he is faithful to those who are faithful.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Be careful who you let lead you and follow the example of Jesus in all you do.
