Matthew 23:5

Everything they do is done for people to see. – Matthew 23:5

Dear Jesus,

How you must cringe when you see that I do things simply to look good or great in the eyes of others.  Help me to check my motives and to pursue doing the right thing before you just because I love what is right. Make me a lover of the truth and not a lover of attention. Give me a new heart that forgives, helps and encourages others instead of criticizing, comparing and judging them.  Give me insight to use words that release people from sin and guilt and not condemn them.  Make me a blessing to my family, church and community. 

AMEN

Who we are is ten times more important that what we do.
