Heavenly Father, we are often fooled into thinking that being
"remarkable" has something to do with recognition for a talent or a skill. We
think that it might be attached to those who we see on the big screen or those
who enter into politics. Help us to see that we are defined by the remarkable
things we do for You.
We are Your children and we are remarkable each time we lift up
someone in need who walks beside us. We are remarkable each time we share Your
love with someone who was just waiting for us to open that door.
Remind us, Lord, as we work through our endless chores that the
duties that occupy our time at home or at work or anywhere else can become
heavenly ones if we do them for You. We might just discover that what we have
done is simply remarkable because it is stamped with Your love and approval.
Bless each of us as we step out in the wisdom of love and genuine kindness to
create a brighter day for someone else. Help us to live for You today. In Jesus'
name we pray. Amen.
Read James 3:17
