The older I get the more I realize the importance of respect…respect for my family, to what is true, and most of all, to God and His Word.
Everything we do needs to be for the glory of God; not ourselves. That unimportant argument you had with your Dad? Well, if it doesn’t bring glory to God drop it. Respect your parents even if you don’t think they are correct…(Many times they are correct anyway 😉 )
Read your Bible, pray, praise the Lord, and follow the Lord every minute of each and every day!
This means DENYING YOURSELF and following what the Lord has for you to follow, whether you want to or not. If it is right before the Lord do it!
Don’t hesitate because the world is telling you to do something else that might feel “more fun” or “more exciting”.
Do what is RIGHT before the LORD, no matter the cost.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” ~Philippians 4:8
