Walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him

Living for Jesus a life that is true,

Striving to please Him in all that I do;

Yielding allegiance, glad hearted and free,

This is the pathway of blessing for me

Life is a gift from God to be lived for God.

A story is told about a vendor who sold bagels for 50 cents each at a street corner food stand. A jogger ran past and threw a couple of quarters into the bucket but didn't take a bagel. He did the same thing every day for the months. One day, as the jogger was passing by, the vendor stopped him. The jogger asked, You probably want to know why i always put money in but never take a bagel, don't you? No, said the vendor. I just wanted to tell you that the bagels have gone up....

To often, as believers, we treat God with that same kind of attitude. Not only are we grateful for what He's given us but we want more. Somehow we feel that God owes us good health, a comfortable life, material blessings. God doesn't owe us anything, yet He gives us everything...

Each day, whether good or bad, is one more gift from our God. Our grateful response should be to live to please Him.
