“As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.” Psalm 17:15 (ESV)
We may seek to model our lives after a mentor or a parent we admire, but ultimately our energy and focus should be in making Jesus first. The Christian goal is Christ-likeness. Don’t give up your divine inheritance for a temporal promise of a bigger pay check, more material gains, or public notoriety. Be excellent at your craft or profession, but please do not compromise your calling to arise in the resurrection in His likeness.
Let’s pray today that Jesus stays first in our attitude, business, and relationships.
