“Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”
Loving God and tender Shepherd, use me each day to be a blessing to someone in need. Please open my eyes and ears to see those around me who need emotional support or financial help. Please give me the courage to bless them and lead them closer to you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Then those in the boat worshiped Him and said, “Truly You are the Son of God!
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are my Lord and my God and that You stripped Yourself of Your heavenly glory to bring salvation to a lost and dying world. Thank You that You humbled Yourself by becoming a Man.. so that You could live a perfect life; die a sacrificial death and rise again the third day so that sinners such as I may be saved by grace through faith in You.. and live a victorious life, through the power of the Holy Spirit. May I live to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
– Matthew 5:44
