Thoughts on Today's Verse...

I can't think of a more lofty goal for today than that the name of Jesus be glorified in what we do and say. But then Paul took it a step further — we should find our glory by being identified with him! So may Jesus be glorified in each of us today, and may our glory be seen in our walk with Jesus! As the famed old hymn "Beneath the Cross of Jesus" says, "My glory all the cross."

My Prayer...

Father of majesty and might, please help me as I strive to plan my daily activities and then prioritize those activities so that my focus and passion are on bringing you glory in all that I do, think, and say. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
