Help me to live in a way that pleases and honors you, O Lord.
To live in a way that pleases and honors the Lord. Wow. Think about that. All the “stuff” that we think about, that we say, that we do, all of that should honor the Lord. For sinners like me, that is a tough task; but on the other hand, look at the tough day Jesus had when He was crucified. He did that for us. When we truly stop and think about what Jesus had to endure, and all that pain, it should humble us; and humble us to the point where we should be embarrassed if we don’t at least try our best to live up to His expectations. One day at a time, one behavior modification at a time, and we can do this. We owe it to Him.
