A Truth to Live – What do I have that is worthy to pass along to the next generation? Talent? Genius? Education? Heritage? While all these are good traits, none of them are the foundation stones of a fruitful life. More than anything else those watching and emulating my life are looking for a confident strength that comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Having a righteous character requires having the right unselfish motives to do the right things all the time – even when no one else is looking. To everyone who lives a righteous life, God promises to bless their children.
Scripture – “The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.” Proverbs 20:7
Prayer – Dear Heavenly Father, today I surrender to You my internal motives. These deep desires drive my actions, thoughts and my future. I ask You to cleanse my heart so that righteousness has a space to grow my character and shape my conversation. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
