Flavor My Actions

Good morning, Father! Thank you for yesterday and Your many blessings – a good day of work, bringing Massey safely home, an enjoyable trip to Rachel’s grad party and a good evening with family. Thank You for today, looking forward to what You have in store – Your presence in worship and whatever our other endeavors might be. And thank You for now – I am so grateful we have this time together!

Philippians 4:2-5 (<<click here)

My study Bible* defines being considerate as being “reasonable, fair-minded and charitable.” Paul calls us to “let everyone see that [we] do.” v5 It really boils down to thinking of others before ourselves. Lord, help me to impact the world around me by thinking of those around me instead of myself – and that includes family and friends, coworkers and total strangers. Lord, I feel that my personality has a leaning towards this mindset – though I am sure selfish pride works its way in way to often! Please help consideration to become a bigger part of my life. And I would humbly ask that You would be at the center of each act – that You “flavor” my actions so others would clearly get a “taste” of You each time and that they would know that You are working through me – for “You are near.”
