TODAY’S READING

Revelation 14:6-13

KEY VERSE: They will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them. – Revelation 14:13 (NIV)

MESSAGE

The athletic field was covered with frost as I jogged across it one chilly morning. Glancing back, I saw patterns from my running shoes on the grass. I was reminded of how our lives and the choices we make also leave marks. For better or worse, our actions make impressions on those around us, and our choices have an immediate effect as well as eternal consequences.

When I first became a Christian, my mentor taught me to always have my spiritual antennae up, even when doing something routine like shopping at the grocery store. We never know where the Holy Spirit might lead. A kind word spoken in the checkout line might be enough to help raise someone’s spirits. Returning a lost cellphone or wallet to a customer service desk might restore someone’s faith in humanity. Helping someone reach an item on an upper shelf might put a smile on his face.

Little things matter to God. As Jesus said, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much” (Lk. 16:10). With each faithful choice, we can ensure the impressions we make bring glory to God and benefit others.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

All my choices are opportunities to be faithful to God.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Dear God, help us to have our spiritual antennae up at all times. Show us the people in our paths who especially need our love. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
