Courage – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Life is a school and you are here to learn; pass all your tests. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class, but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

Challenge:

You can’t fail life as long as you learn from your mistakes and keep trying. If you fall seven times, get up eight. When you think you don’t have the strength to get up, look to God in prayer. He will lift you.

Reference:

It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees. Deuteronomy 17:19 (NABRE)

Worship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Bringing pleasure to God is called “worship.”

Challenge:

Don’t just worship God on Sunday. Worship God every day this week. Start today by performing an act of kindness to those around you.

Reference:

I will thank the Lord at all times. My mouth will always praise him. Psalm 34:1 (NABRE)

Character – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Your character will be known by your actions. Nobody will take it upon your word.

Challenge:

Your actions, not words, will always be the true reflection of your character. Act in such a way today that those people you encounter can see that you strive to have the characteristics of Christ: compassion, comfort, forgiveness, love…

Reference:

I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. Philippians 3:10 (NABRE)

Service – Daily TAGline

Thought:

The future depends on what we do in the present.

Challenge:

We make choices everyday that can impact our future. As you make your choices today, remember that your future is with God. Act accordingly.

Reference:

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 6:19-20 (NABRE)

Faith – Daily TAGline

Thought:

It takes a little rain to enjoy a rainbow.

Challenge:

Just because we don’t understand God’s plan doesn’t mean the outcome won’t be beautiful. Trust God today with all your decisions and see where He leads you.

Reference:

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” Genesis 9:16 (NABRE)

Discipleship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Realizing that life on earth is just a temporary assignment should drastically change your attitude.

Challenge:

God has given you a specific role here on earth. If He paid you a visit today could you justify your activities so far this week? What one thing can you change for the remainder of the week to focus on God’s gifts?

Reference:

What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. For this world in its present form is passing away. 1 Corinthians 7:31,35 (NABRE)

Wisdom – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Money is a lousy way of keeping score.

Challenge:

No matter who you are, someone has more than you. Don’t try to get even. Look for ways to spread your wealth with others, and then let those with more try to keep up with you.

Reference:

For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy 6:10 (NABRE)

Change – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

Challenge:

If you feel like the world needs changing, the best place to start is with the world immediately around you. The best way to change the world around you is to first change yourself. Prayerfully consider something about you that you need to change. Will the change positively impact the world around you? If yes, then do it.

Reference:

For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 (NABRE)

Attitude – Daily TAGline

Thought:

During our brief stay on earth, we don’t really own anything. God just loans the earth to us while we are here.

Challenge:

As you talk to people today, reflect on how often you talk about your possessions. Remember you can’t take it with you, so look for ways to share God’s possessions with others today.

Reference:

The world and all that is in it belongs to the Lord; the earth and all who live on it are his. Psalm 24:1 (NABRE)

Anxiety – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Worrying is paying interest on troubles that may never come due.

Challenge:

Improve your spiritual bank account. Avoid worrying about things that may never happen, or are beyond your control. Instead, pray that the Lord will give you the patience and strength to deal with your situation, then focus your energy on things with which you can have a positive impact.

Reference:

Do not worry about tomorrow. Matthew 6:14 (NABRE)
