It's hard to get excited about the gray day outside my window in Lansing, MI. That's why I really need to spend time focusing my attention for the day as it gets started.
It would be too easy to get wrapped up in all extreme politics going on in our city and our state. There's a lot at stake. I know that I have to turn my head and my heart farther than that and to what Joe Stowell talks about in Our Daily Bread, the devotional from Radio Bible Class.
He writes about being like Jesus and what that means. He bases it on Romans 8:26-29.
- Being like Jesus is not about keeping the rules, going to church, and tithing.
- It’s about knowing His forgiveness, and committing acts of grace and mercy on a consistent basis.
- It’s about living a life that values all people.
- And it’s about having a heart of full surrender to the will of our Father.
