Discipleship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Blessed are the merciful. Mercy is what He desires.

Challenge:

Jesus said several times in the Gospel that He desires mercy not sacrifice – that He had come to call the sinners, not the righteous. Today, recognize that you are a sinner, ask for His mercy, and then extend mercy to someone in need. Do this and you will be blessed.

Reference:

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7 (NABRE)

Wisdom – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing be be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

Habits – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Education is what you get when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don’t.

Read the Bible regularly, always educating yourself in the Christian faith. Why pay the price of experience when the perfect Word of the Lord is so near at hand?

Priorities – Daily TAGline

Thought:

If you stop to think about it, there are very few benefits in your life for which you can take sole credit.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12 (NABRE)
