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).

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

A lighthouse may stand alone, yet do much good!
