Righteous living

The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked rots. ~ Proverbs 10:7 (CEB)

But everyone who has done right will shine like the sun in their Father’s kingdom. ~ Matthew 13:43a (CEV)

KEY IDEA:
Ultimately righteous living pays off.
PRAYER:
Holy God, thank you for allowing us to participate in your righteousness, as given to us through your Son Jesus. It is, though, tempting to think that how I live doesn't really matter. Aterall I am an insignificant and unimportant person. Nobody really cares what I do. Help me to recognize how much you care and how important my life is to you. I'm going to live right because of the way that you have treated me and those like me. Your care is clearly visible. Amen.
