In the past, we have talked about things like character, integrity, among other topics. One thing I have learned is that it is one thing to talk about it, but people do not care unless you are walking it out in your daily life. Without going into great detail, I was approached on this past Monday about taking on a new assignment.
Admittedly, I was somewhat apprehensive as I have a lot of things going on at the moment. But the one thing that stood out in my mind was that when the subject was raised again on yesterday, I was told that I was the only one considered because I was the only one that could be trusted with completing the task.
It would have been easy to become inflated because it would appear that my ego was being stroked, but it was not. The person continued to explain the situation to me and I was deeply humbled. Why? Because I was first and only person to come to mind to take on the task because of things like character and integrity.
I have said all of that to say this…if we are going to be loud in our professions about our Christian lifestyle, then we had better be prepared to back it up with our actions because we never know who is watching us. We either bring greater glory to God or we bring a reproach upon His great name with our words and our actions. My prayer today is that we all continue to live lives that are pleasing to God…and if we are not doing so, my prayer is that we would begin…
God bless you all and I love you!!! Have a blessed day in God!
