Character – Daily TAGline

Thought:

The mirror of a man’s heart is his actions.

Challenge:

Your true character is reflected by your actions, not just by your words. Make sure your actions today support your words and paint a clear portrait of what you believe God expects of you.

Reference:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NABRE)

Discipleship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Discipleship is becoming more like Jesus and letting Him live His life more in you.

Challenge:

Open your heart and let Jesus in. Let Him show you His path for you. Let the Holy Spirit guide you through the day. Start immediately by thinking of some small kindness you can do for someone around you. Now act; that’s the Him in you.

Reference:

And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:52 (NABRE)

Priorities – Daily TAGline

Thought:

When you gamble with your time, you may be placing a bet you can’t cover.

Challenge:

Be conscious of your time today and how you use it, for only God knows how much you have left. If you knew your time was coming to an end, how would you change your priorities today?

Reference:

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 (NABRE)

Prayer – Daily TAGline

Thought:

A relationship is like a house. When a light bulb burns out, you don’t go and buy a new house, you fix the light bulb.

Challenge:

Has the light gone out in any of the important relationships in your life? Meaningful relationships require a commitment. Don’t just walk away in the darkness. Identify the problem and work on fixing it. Ask God to shed a little light on it for you. Could it be your relationship with God that needs your attention? Regardless, starting with prayer will help you flip the switch back on.

Reference:

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 (NABRE)

Morals – Daily TAGline

Thought:

If you cannot be the poet, be the poem.

Challenge:

Most of us have been inspired by poetry, but few of us write poetry. You don’t have to be a great writer or creator to make a difference…Be a living example of your Christian values each and every day. Others will see and “read” your actions and will be inspired by your goodness.

Reference:

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:18 (NABRE)

Priorities – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Work for a cause…Not for applause. Live life to express…Not to impress!

Challenge:

What is your passion? What are you motivated by most? What drives your priorities each day? Anything you would like to change? What are you going to do about it today? Tomorrow? Have you talked to God about it? What are you waiting for?

Reference:

Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor. Proverbs 21:21 (NABRE)

Discipleship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

Challenge:

Sometimes our daily interactions with others are mostly superficial and our personal exchanges simulate commodity trades. Slow down, look around, try to truly engage others in a meaningful dialogue that will allow both of you to grow and benefit.

Reference:

But the LORD said to Samuel, Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 (NABRE)

Priorities – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Perseverance is failing nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth.

Challenge:

Persevere in everything that is important to you – your faith, your family, your friends, your character. Never give up on these key elements of your life and God will ensure your ultimate success.

Reference:

Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:4 (NABRE)

Discipleship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

God doesn’t want you to become a god; he wants you to become godly – taking on His values, attitudes, and character.

Challenge:

As you go through your day, feel the Spirit moving within you. Inspire the Christ-like values in others by reflecting His Godliness through your actions today.

Reference:

As the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him and reflect His glory even more. 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NABRE)

Wisdom – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Amateurs practice until they get it right – Professionals practice until they don’t get it wrong.

Challenge:

Are you a professional Christian or an Amateur? When you do something right, it doesn’t give you the authority to sit back and admire yourself. Ask God to purify your intentions and to provide you the will to continuously practice His values.

Reference:

Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 (NABRE)
