Linking with Tuesday at Ten
In Titus 3:18, “Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, to give for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.” How do we learn to devote to doing what is good, to give for urgent needs, and to live a productive life?
L=Lean on Jesus
So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORDwith all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight Proverbs 3: 4-6
E=Eagerly Serve Him
I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are in Rome. I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, then to the Greek.… Romans 1: 14-16
A=Always Speak the Truth in Love
because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy, and peace be with us in truth and love from Godthe Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father. I was overjoyed to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father has commanded us.…2 John 1: 2-4
R=Rejoice in the Lord.
Bless those who persecute you. Bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but enjoy the company of the lowly. Do not be conceited.…Romans 12: 14-16
N=Notice that He is God
And all the people took notice of it, and it pleased them, as everything that the king did pleased all the people. 2 Samuel 3:36
God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” Exodus 3:14
Beloved, God is the great I Am. Do you honor Yahweh? Reading God’s word, praying, investing time in others. Do you have a daily quiet time where you learn from God’s word?
We have so much to learn about God and to devote ourselves to doing good. One way is to devote ourselves to give for urgent needs for someone in need, one might give a meal to the homeless or helping at the Senior Citizen Center. Today, I washed my mother-in-law’s hair. It made her day.
We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world Helen Keller
