Daily Readings – I Me 1:1?

Day 1855: Another Monday to serve God and others!

Scripture: Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your name be the glory. Because of Your lovingkindness and because of Your truth. Psalm 115:1

Thoughts/questions: We probably are fairly self- oriented every day, but Mondays may be our most selfish day. After a weekend of somewhat doing whatever we choose, Monday brings us back to the reality of ‘having’ to do things we might not ordinarily choose to do.

When we focus on self too much, we demonstrate that we are living out this verse – First Me 1:1. Oh, that doesn’t exist in the Bible – right! Yet it still is a favorite of too many who claim to follow Jesus. Jesus knew nothing of this verse and lived His life contrary to ‘me first!’

We are to replace I Me 1:1 with today’s verse –Not to us, but to Your name be the glory! Examine your life. Have you gradually slipped into a I Me 1:1 lifestyle? Maybe today’s the day for us to think of others as more important than ourselves.

Suggested prayer: Sovereign Lord, help me to always recognize that it is NOT all about me . . .
