Reflective living

David prayed: You have done this wonderful thing, and you have let me know about it, because you wanted to keep your promise. ~ 2 Samuel 7:21 (CEV)

God gave us a glimpse of the depths of his love when he sent his only Son into the world with the purpose of sacrificing his life for us. ~ 1 John 4:9 (ABP)

KEY IDEA:
Everything God does reveals his love and faithfulness.
PRAYER:
I am amazed, God, every time that I pause to consider what you have done and how you have done it. You are incredible! My problem is that I don't often pause to consider what you have done and how you have done it. I am not very reflective. Even when I pay attention to a sermon I'm mostly just looking for nuggets of practical advice -- for ways to improve my life. Keep reminding me of what you have done so that I can get my focus off self and onto you -- which is where it needs to be. Amen.
