Thought for the Day: Are we awake? Has the alarm sounded? Did we hit snooze? When people of faith think about a holy calling, so often it includes a mountain, a burning bush, a clap of thunder and some other pyrotechnics. Yet in this devotional, I’d like to suggest that every morning we awake to an invitation from God. Whether we read some scripture first thing, say a prayer or just spend a few moments in silence, there is always a sacred beckoning upon our lives. That holy whisper is inviting us to choose a life lived for the sake of others. What would it look like if we all reduced our focus upon self by just 5% today, and maybe another 5% tomorrow? How much more impactful would our lives be upon the world around us?
Prayer: As I wake up and get moving this morning, Merciful God, put that holy calling of love and kindness before me. It is time for me to be fully alert to the opportunities of Christ-like living that will be before me today. Amen.
