Daily Verse: “The wage of the righteous leads to life, the gain of the wicked to sin.” Prov. 10:16
Good living pays off.
Following God’s commands will help you live well. The Lord covers every topic imaginable in scripture. But perhaps the one I find most applicable comes from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians:
“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.” 1 Cor. 6:12 ESV
Righteous living means understanding that we can do everything but shouldn’t. Learning what helps us live fully in Christ happens one day at a time as we discover what works and what doesn’t.
Journeying with Jesus means constantly growing and becoming more like Him. We don’t “arrive” at our destination until we reach heaven. Until then, “Work in Progress” defines us all.
Moderate and moldable living in Christ leads to life-giving wages.
Lord, thank You for showing us how to live. As we pursue You, help us live moderately yet fully. Bless our efforts to follow Jesus, growing more like Him each day. IJNIP. Amen
