You are what you eat
Faith without works is dead. James 2:14-17
This week many of us will celebrate Independence Day in America with picnics, trips to the lake, time with friends and family, and maybe even some fireworks. But I want to challenge you to not only think about our civil freedoms, but our spiritual ones.
One of my favorite songs is Amazing Grace. My favorite verse is the third verse. The Lord has promised good to me,
Proverbs 20:29 (NLT) "The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old."
At a recent devotional time, I was challenged to remember how the church is made up of many parts with all different gifts.
"Leaders belong to their followers. A director [or leader in any position] should refer to employees and 'the people I serve.'" -Leading without Power, Max De Pree
Celebrate today with this encouraging message!
Proverbs 31:25 is a beautiful verse that reminds me that strength and dignity are choices that I make. Being clothed in strength is not something that comes from inside me, but something I choose to receive from God.
