Day 8 Complete! 🕯️Favorite Devotional Part:🕯️ .The great challenge is putting Jesus’ words into practice. His instructions are clear, but some of the standards seem impossibly high. Yet, #nothingistoohardforthelord. Stop worrying and #startliving Jesus commands you not to worry about your life or material things. Think ahead, plan ahead, but don’t worry ahead. Trust in your #heavenlyfather to provide. He knows your every need. Faith is the antidote to worry. Live in day-tight compartments. Live one day at a time. Don’t borrow trouble from tomorrow: ‘each day has enough trouble of its own’. Make a decision today not to worry about tomorrow. #trustgod to provide for you one day at a time.Sort out your priorities. #Jesus tells you to change your ambitions and priorities. #seekgod for who he is and not for what he can do for you. Do not be judgmental.  We are not to take pleasure in judging others, not to enjoy seeking out other people’s failings or presuming their actions spring from bad motives. If we knew what people had been through, their sorrow and their suffering, we would not be so quick to judge. Jesus tells us to get our own lives sorted out first. We are to change ourselves before we try and change other people. Rather than sowing harsh criticism and judgment, sow mercy, kindness and love. Choose to live a radical life.Stay on the #narrowroad that leads to life. On the narrow road there is no room for pride, dishonesty, anger, hatred of enemies or un-forgiveness. #humility is the order of the day. You have to give, pray, exercise self-control and #seekfirst the #kingdomofgod. It is a road of purity, integrity, honesty and forgiveness. It is a road where you are required to ‘do to others what you would have them do to you’ (v.12). You are to show good fruit – by your character, lifestyle, teaching, actions, impact and #relationships. 🗝️Favorite Passage(s): Matthew 7:7‭-‬8‭, ‬13‭-‬20 KJV Matthew 7:1‭-‬5 KJV Matthew 7:13‭-‬21 KJV #youversion #bibleinoneyear #god #bibleinoneyear2017 #servehim #bible #readthebible #scripture #bibleinayear #accountable #biblechallenge #everyword #bibleinoneyearchallenge2017 #christianlife #forgive #nojudgment
