Thought for the Day: There have been those who suggested over the years that our only task is to praise God in a spirit of worship and gratitude. There have been others who have suggested that our only task is to do good things and share what we have with others. I have even seen these very verses of scriptures referenced individually to argue one point or the other. Just a crazy idea – could it be both? Maybe we need a balance of gratitude and service, relationship building with God and sacrificially living that represents our relationship with a God whose love is sacrificial. As you have heard me say often, we pretend to live in an either/or world, but in reality, it is more often a both/and.
Prayer: I offer a word of praise to you, O Source of Love, while also seeking to live a life that resembles you, the One who I praise. Continue to help me to live a life that is balanced, where every expression of my faith draws strength and understanding from every other expression. Amen.
