Living the Good Life
Scripture: 1 Peter 2:  Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
Observation: Do I live a life that others notice as being good? Do people come up and ask where I get my peace and joy? Unfortunately the answer is no. I’m easily distracted by the things of this world, become anxious and worry and get involved in things I shouldn’t.
Application: I need to be different, not to complain to others, but to always be joyful in all that I do. To go beyond what is expected and show others my good deeds and be ready to answer if someone asks why I’m so happy, then point them to Jesus.
Prayer: Dear Lord give me peace in my spirit and strength to do what is right in honoring you. Make me a beacon of light to others and show me how to fulfill the commission of showing my love.
