Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Thursday Dec. 31st. The 5th day of the Hebraic week.
Our verse today is Philemon 4.
I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, 5 because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints.
What an awesome thing to be said about someone. Think about it for a minute. Could this be said about you? Examine your life closely and look at verse 5 here again.
When others think of you, what would be thought about your faith? Do you only have faith in the good times? When the hard times come, how do you handle them? Or do you allow them to handle you?
When others think of you, what do they think of regarding your love for all the saints? Do you only love those who love you? As Yeshua said, don’t event the pagans do that?
I agree that we are not to live our lives in accordance to what others may think of us but rather to what YHWH KNOWS about us. Yet, that should be all the more of a reason for us to examine our lives in these areas. So the question should be, “When YHWH looks at us, what does He think about our faith or love for others?”
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
