A Daily Devotion for January 5, Tuesday
verse 17: But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
When I read the passage for today, I thought about the fact checkers who work for publishing companies. They are in charge of making sure facts stated in a book are accurate and true, before the book gets published. I could use this passage from James to check out my own choices. Am I acting sincerely, impartially, with mercy? Am I using the gifts God has made available to me to make the best choice possible? Do I check my behavior and choices before I act? Often I check my behavior afterwards and can see I did not make the right choice. It is so difficult sometimes to think before I act!
Holy Father, you have given me such excellent direction. Your Word is always available to me. Thank-you God for allowing me so many chances to try to get it right. I am changing. Amen
