Living for Christ

Today's reading: Romans 12:9-13

Since we've been in Proverbs for two weeks now, this week we're taking a short break and looking at a variety of scripture passages on being a Christ-follower. Romans 12:9-21 is filled with direction and instructions from Paul on what our lives should look like as we follow Christ. Since this is such a rich passage, I choose to focus on just verses 9-13 today. Then tomorrow, we'll look at verses 14-21.

Every single one of the instructions in verses 9-13 were encouraging, but "outdo one another in showing honor" spoke a little louder to me than the others this morning. I came away from my reading thinking about how I can be more intentional (today and this week) about building other people up with my words and actions, and also be intentional when it comes to putting other's interests before my own.

What did God impress on your heart from these verses today? What's your response plan for the week? Tami
