Whoever speaks the truth gives honest evidence, but a false witness speaks deceitfully. (Proverbs 12:17)
Thought for the day:
Have I today done anything to fulfill the purpose for which Thou didst cause me to be born?
Have I accepted the opportunities of service as Thou in Thy wisdom hast set before my feet?
Have I kept my imagination pure and healthy?
Have I been transparently sincere in all I have professed to be, to feel, to do?
Have I made more excuses for myself than I have been willing to make for others?
Give me grace to answer honestly, O God.
Excerpts from A Diary of Private Prayer by John Baillie
Prayer for the day:
God of grace, give me the will to be honest with myself, with You, and with others. Grant me the desire to fulfill the purpose for which You created me.
