Wisdom from the Psalms 7/8

July 8

Psalms 85:9
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

Roger was the best cop in the precinct. His record was sparkling clean, and he was the model for most rookies to follow. His most frequent piece of advice was simple: Pay attention. Roger had watched a lot of his friends blow it, just because they got careless. Police work was not for careless people. Bad things happened to careless people; things that couldn't be undone. The best way to be was careful. The last thing Roger wanted to have happen was for his career, or his life, to come to an end over some stupid mistake.
One of the best ways we can honor our Lord is to pay attention and be careful. Other people see the way we live our lives, and if we are sloppy and sinful, we can hardly hope to make others see the benefits of being Christian. Once we have been touched by the saving grace of God, we need to pay attention and live as careful a life a possible.
Prayer: Make me a good example, Lord, of a life made new through Your love. Help others to see in me that Your way is the best way. Amen.
