Thought:

Are you fit company for the person you wish to become?

Reference:

God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect. Hebrews 11:40 (NABRE)

Habits – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.

Challenge:

Carry your civilization, the Bible, with you today (or at least carry it off the end table) and read it. Don’t let God’s word be silent in your life or your faith may encounter a standstill.

Reference:

…and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15-17 (NABRE)

Service – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Since God knows what’s best for you, you should gratefully accept the way he fashioned you.

Challenge:

God loves each of us as we are. He did not make a mistake with you and you have a specific purpose to serve. If you’re not sure how God plans to use you, take a quiet moment and think about what you enjoy and what you’re good at. Spend more of your time using the skills you enjoy to help others and to serve God.

Reference:

But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ ” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use? Romans 9:20-21 (NABRE)

Praise – Daily TAGline

Your good fortune lies not only in what blessings God gives you, but in how you receive them.

Reference:

I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:23-24 (NABRE)

Thought:

We are not lost because we are going to end up in the wrong place. We are going to end up in the wrong place because we are lost.
