REFLECTING GOD’S CHARACTER
You must not let yourself get into resentments, hates, fears, pride, lust, or gossip. Self-discipline is always better than self-destruction. Even if this discipline keeps you separated from everybody else, nevertheless, carry on. You may seem different, but only by being different can you be an example to others of a better way of living.
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matt. 5:14)
PRAYER FOR TODAY
God, it seems as though when You want to express to men what You look like, You make a very beautiful character. God, You created us to be a reflection of Your character. We pray we may develop God-like attributes and be as fit an expression of God-like character as we can. We pray that we may reflect God-like character and look for it in those around us. “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Gen. 1:27).
