We are to live an honorable life before God. Every day, our desires should be to live up to His statutes. We are to live for the Lord for He is our strength. There is hope smiling down from the heavens above. Live each day to praise God. Lift Him up high. Sing songs of praise. He has rescued each of us from sin. Thank Him for your new life. Imagine what your life would be like without the Lord. Let all the world know that the path to heaven is Jesus. His love is for all men. Let your light so shine before men. Seek the Lord and make better choices. People will notice us. As they ask questions speak from your heart. Let the love of God be on your mind. Speak of His salvation for all men. Share the Word of God with them. If they are in need, give them your assistance. Be good to all men that you come in contact with. Acknowledge the kindness of others and tell them thank you. Let your communication be free of foul language. These kinds of words harm us from within and drive away the spirit of God. Live to be worthy of our King. Jesus is not of this world. Therefore, let your hearts be turned to him and not be caught up in what the world offers.
It is an honor to serve the King of Glory. As his servants we live by His words. The Word of God is in our hearts. It is a light to our path. We lean on the Spirit for guidance in our lives. If the Lord finds a kink in us we make it right. If there is someone in our family that we don’t get along with we do the necessary things to mend the relationship. Just as Jesus is kind towards us, we are to be courteous towards others. If any of you have bad ties with someone in your life do something about it today. Call the person on the phone and tell them sorry. Write them a letter. Buy them a card. Get them flowers. Best of all, make a personal trip to their home. Tell them you are sorry. We must love others as much as we love God. If we say we love God but have hate for another our love is dead. God knows how we really feel in our hearts. Just as the Lord has shown us mercy, without us deserving it, we should freely forgive others. The grace of God is for all that follow Jesus. Let His grace flow deep in our hearts. There is true joy when lives are changed. Make a difference in another person’s life. Thank You Lord for your great example of how to live our lives.
22 And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech and Phichol, the commander of his army, spoke to Abraham, saying, “God is with you in all that you do. 23 Now therefore, swear to me by God that you will not deal falsely with me, with my offspring, or with my posterity; but that according to the kindness that I have done to you, you will do to me and to the land in which you have dwelt.”
24 And Abraham said, “I will swear.”
25 Then Abraham rebuked Abimelech because of a well of water which Abimelech’s servants had seized.
26 And Abimelech said, “I do not know who has done this thing; you did not tell me, nor had I heard of it until today.”
27 So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a covenant.
