person undeservedly. We want to see the best out of others, and be the best to others. Our actions say a lot about what we are full of.
Third – a former pastor of mine always said “What you do speaks so loudly that what you say I cannot hear”. Do your words reflect your actions? Are you consistent, or are you a Pharisee? Who were the only people Jesus spoke harsh words to while He was here on this earth? The scribes and Pharisees! Why? Because they did not display the fruits of righteousness. They spoke of a just God, but their lives were shallow and all words. Be authentic!
The fruits of righteousness are only possible because He lives in us. That is next.
Lord, help me to live a righteous life. I realize I cannot do this in myself – I have to rely on you to have any form of righteousness. So help me lose myself so I may gain more of you. Help me to only live out what you put in me. Help me to walk in your paths and ways, not my own. I can’t possibly do this without you!
