JANUARY 18 DEVOTION

Friday, January 18, 2013

WHOEVER IS FAITHFUL IN A VERY LITTLE IS FAITHFUL ALSO IN MUCH. LUKE 16:10

GOD, I KNOW THAT INTEGRITY MEANS BEING THE SAME ON THE OUTSIDE AS ON THE INSIDE, IN PUBLIC AS IN PRIVATE, IN MY HEART AS IN MY ACTIONS. SOMETIMES I FEEL THE FRICTION BETWEEN THESE REALMS AS I TRY TO BUILD AN IMAGE APART FROM REALITY. PLEASE SAVE ME FROM THE TEMPTATION OF HALF-TRUTHS, PRETENSE, AND INAUTHENTICITY. HELP ME DO THE HARD WORK OF BRINGING MY CHARACTER IN LINE WITH WHAT I WANT IT TO BE, INSTEAD OF TAKING THE SHORTCUT OF CREATING A FALSE PERSONA. TODAY I'LL START WITH THE LITTLE THINGS, GOD. HELP ME BE FAITHFUL IN THEM SO THAT I'LL BE STRONG ENOUGH TO STAND WHEN THE BIG TESTS OF MY CHARACTER COMES ALONG.

IT IS NECESSARY TO THE HAPPINESS OF MAN THAT HE BE MENTALLY FAITHFUL TO HIMSELF.
THOMAS PAINE
After reading this devotion, I realized how true this. Sometimes, we try to be what we feel others want us to be, not be as God sees us.

GOD BLESS MY FRIENDS.
