"We aren't called to a life of affluence,but rather to live a life of influence."(Ed Young)
How will you chooose to influence those around you today? Will you choose to sow seeds of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control with the co-worker who always seems to grate your nerves, or the child who challenges you in everything, or the boss who continues to pile more and more work onto your already full plate? Or, when the copy machine jams, or when the phone rings non-stop, or the kids argue and fight, or your husband gets home late, or there's not enough money left to pay all the bills, will you choose to let the enemy steal your joy?
I challenge you today, as the Lord has been challenging me, to look beyond yourself. Look beyond what it is that makes you comfortable, step put of your box of self absorption and me-idus, and sow God's love in the hearts of all those you come in contact with today.
