My Monday Prayer: Truth Keeps You in Balance

My Monday Prayer: Truth Keeps You in Balance
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Colossians 3:17 NKJV)

Truth does not hop around on one foot. It walks forward on two strong, well-balanced legs. Jesus taught the truth and lived the truth.

Sometimes we can put an emphasis on “doing” and make that the most important thing, and sometimes we can put the emphasis on “teaching” and make that the most important thing. One of these truths must never be emphasized at the expense of the other. As believers in Christ, we are called to live the Gospel and preach the Gospel; demonstrate the Kingdom and proclaim the Kingdom; do good works and teach good doctrine; live a life of love and speak the truth in love.

My Monday Prayer
-Marina Bromley

Father, thank You for being with me today. Please help me to take these words to heart, learning to speak truth in love. Sometimes I let my emotions overtake the acts of teaching and living, and I need to learn from Your example to do them in balance. Also help me to remember that You alone are qualified to judge, and so often Your example through Jesus was not to give punishment, but to give mercy.  You love sinners, even me! Help me to love. Teach me to love like You do. In Jesus' name, amen.
