Wisdom from the Psalms 7/7

 
July 7

Psalms 84:11
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

Loren worked on his tan all summer. He wanted that "ruddy, healthy look." All his efforts went into the pursuit of the perfect tan. By fall, he knew he's be the envy of all his friends and the object of desire of all the ladies.
 
A suntan is an outward sign. Everyone who looks, sees that the person has been changed in some way. The same is true of our Son tan; the spiritual bathing we take in Christ. Do people notice a difference in our lives just by looking at us? If we have been touched by the light of Christ, people should be able to tell. No longer do we walk selfishly and in sin. Through Christ, we walk upright, and God shines forth through us. Let us work hard on our spiritual image as we do on our physical one.
 
Prayer: Shine Your light on, in, and through me, Lord, that I might fight against darkness wherever I go. Amen.
