I Was Wrong | Michelle Myers
S~ What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Luke 12:3 (NIV)
O/A~ Just going to keep it real, in a few texts to my husband, the words I used to reference our downstairs neighbors were not that nice. When I walked past her door the other day, I used a not so nice term, under my breath, toward her. She may not know it, but YOU do. That matters more than anything. Please forgive me for my nastiness towards her. That is not the person I want to be, nor is it the person You want me to be.
P~ Thank you God for Your grace. Please help my heart in regards to her. Please help me get to the point, where I can pray for her. I am not there yet. I don’t have to like her. I don’t. However, I do have to love her. Please help me with that!
Responsibilities | Nikki Metzger
S~ And the Lord replied, “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them. Luke 12:42 (NLT)
O~ Jesus is talking about being ready when He comes back again. We must be ready!!
A~ The line of responsibility for managing my kids is shifting, that always causes tension. They want to be independent, yet I know they aren’t ready for all the adult things.
So right now I’m trying to understand what I’m responsible for and what they are responsible for in their spiritual life. And some days, I’m so fed up with my children’s attitudes, I want to be done.
But here, God says a faithful and sensible servant, that’s me, is one whom the Master will give responsibility. I’m responsible for my kids. I can’t walk away from this responsibility, but I also can’t do all the work that they need to do to become the people that God has called them.
P~ Father, I do not feel like a faithful and sensible servant whom You given responsibility to manage Your household! Please pour Your wisdom on me in this season of parenting – and grow me to be sensible. Please let me see my responsibilities clearly as well. I love You!
