Comfort – Daily TAGline

Thought:

The Lord will either calm your storm or allow it to rage while He calms you.

Challenge:

When your world gets crazy and you can’t control it, ask for God’s peace to carry you through the storm.

Reference:

Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. Matthew 8:24-26 (NABRE)

Priorities – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Riches are not an end of life, but an instrument of life.

Review your goals this week. How many goals use riches and how many gather them? Adjust accordingly.

Love – Daily TAGline

Service – Daily TAGline

Thought:

The world is full of two kinds of people: the givers and the takers. The takers eat well-but the givers sleep well.

Challenge:

How do you sleep? Christ gave us the perfect example of service as he cleaned the feet of his disciples. Don’t forget to serve first today.

Reference:

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. John 13:3-5 (NABRE)

Thought:

I have lived to thank God that all of my prayers have not been answered my way.
