Reality Bites

I question not God’s means or ways,
Or how He uses time or days,
To answer every call or prayer
I know He will, somehow, somewhere. —Whitney

God may deny our request but will never disappoint our trust

Accepting our fault

A city employee in Lodi, California, is suing the city for damages after he backed a dump truck into his own parked car. The 51-year-old man argues that because the "city’s vehicle damaged my private vehicle," the city owes him $3,600. As ridiculous as this sounds, blaming others has been a basic human trait since the beginning.

When we sin, we should take responsibility.

Let’s pray like David: "I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden" (Ps. 32:5).

Lord, help me not excuse my sin
And blame another person;
For if I don’t admit my wrong,
My sin will only worsen. —Sper

The first step in repenting from sin is to admit that you are to blame.

Today's Devotional

A friend once told me: "Joe, I’ve come to realize that my life is not made by the dreams that I dream but by the choices that I make."
Count on it: You will have plenty of choices in life. And usually they boil down to a choice between "What do I want?" and "What’s best for others?"

Make the best choice. Choose to serve others. —Joe Stowell -->

When we’re involved in serving
And meeting others’ needs,
We’re imitating Jesus
In thoughts and words and deeds.

Serve God by serving others.

Today's Devotional

Reading: They went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. —Luke 24:3

Grave, where is thy victory now?
See the light upon His brow!
Empty—see, the stony bed;
Christ is risen from the dead! —Chisholm

Christ’s empty tomb guarantees our full salvation.
