Is this what other’s think when they look at how you live your life? If it’s not, we’re not living our life in the way God wants us too.

Let’s make sure that we cause unbelievers to question their unbelief when they see how we live our lives.

Wow! That certainly got me taking a much closer look at myself. Am I living my life in a way that others will see Christ through me? If I’m honest with you and with God, no, it doesn’t.

Today I pray that God will help me to be the person He wants me to be, so others can see Him through the way I lead my life.

How about you, can others see Christ in you?

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

It’s true isn’t it, that we often take so many of the things we have for granted, that we actual forget they are given to us. Sadly, it’s often only when we lose those gifts that we realise just how much we received.

That may all sound a bit contradictory, but the bottom line is really this – We must accept all things we receive, no matter how small, with gratitude. After all it’s nice to receive gifts so why not be thankful for everything you receive each day.
