Who are you following?

be-careful-of-following

It is so easy to follow the crowd. Our society encourages us to conform. People who don’t follow the group are considered odd. Certainly if we follow Jesus and the things that he did we will be considered odd. After all helping the poor, feeding the hungry, housing the homeless are not high priorities for society as a whole. Yet we are called to do as Jesus did.

God, you want us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Help us to follow his path in spite of societies ideas. AMEN

Be yourself

Follow the grain in your own wood. –———-Howard Thurman

I bet you are wondering what in the world this has to do with God? It not only does, it is important. Each of us is god’s creation but each of us is different. I may not have been born to be famous or a movie star but my life has a purpose. God wants each of us to be the best ME we can be. There isn’t another person now, in the past, or to come who is just like you. You don’t have to be famous or a genius. Be you. God wants you to do that. BE YOU!

Creative God, you made each of us to be unique and fill the role that you created for us. Help us to do just that. AMEN
