Are your works trying to prove you're a Christian, or improve your standing on earth?
As you serve others in large and small ways today, make sure the credit goes where it belongs – with God. Most importantly, find more ways to serve others.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies–in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
