February 13, 2022 – What Can You Do Differently?
Sermon: 2305 – Cultivating Contentment in the Home
Pray Over This
“Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways.”
A wise man looked back on his life and asked himself, “If I could do it all over again, what would I do differently with my family?” He said, “I would love my wife more in front of my children. I would laugh with my children more at our mistakes and our joys. I would listen more, even to the youngest child. I would be more honest about my own weaknesses and stop pretending perfection. I would pray differently for my family. Instead of focusing on their faults, I would focus more on what I need to change. I would do more things with my children. I would be encouraging and bestow more praise. I would pay more attention to little deeds and words of loving-kindness. And finally, if I could do it all over again, I would share God more intimately with my family, using every ordinary thing that happened to point them to God.” For many of us, at the end of our lives, we will recognize that the things that matter now may not be as important as they seem in the moment. We should ask God to help us reprioritize our lives for His glory.
Take time today to think about what needs to change in the way you spend your life. Seek to implement that change moving forward.
