Thoughts on Today's Verse...

To take what is physically beautiful and then profane it with sin is to waste a great gift. It is blessing someone who doesn't even have a clue why God gave the blessing of physical beauty. No matter what gifts we have been given, whether physical beauty, athletic talent, keen intellect, a charming personality, or anything else, we must remember that God blessed us with these things so we could bless others and honor him!

My Prayer...

Dear God, please forgive me for the times that I have not used my gifts and abilities to bless others and honor you. Please give me a renewed sense of purpose as I seek to live for your glory and to bless others with your grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
