Praise Thursdays: A father’s lifestyle is contagious & Look out! Someone is watching.

A father’s lifestyle is contagious

 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” – James 3: 17

When your lifestyle as a father (or leader), you lead in the love of God and his wisdom, the character you exhibit and the influence you have will impact those who are important to you in life. Wisdom leads to Harmony and peace, what human wisdom leads to arrogance and dissection.  Examine yourself, what kind of wisdom do you depend on? Remember, God wants your very best – so does everyone else you influence, know, and love.

Look out! Someone is watching.

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3

The idea of someone watching seldom occurs to us as we go through life. So often, we say that we want and do exactly what we selfishly choose to do. We need to realize that nothing ever escaped the notice of God and nothing ever surprises him. Proverbs 16:3 says, ” Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.” When we commit our ways to the Lord, everything changes and pleasing God becomes our priority in life. Because God cares, he wants to bless us with his love and mercy. May your life reflect the love that God so generously gives to those who follow him.

Praise Thursday: A leaders prayer changes everything & The God connection for leaders

A leader’s prayer changes everything

James 5:16 (NIV) –  “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

It’s often been said that prayer is like the breath of life, you can’t exist spiritually without it. It also offers a potent connection with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. God has designed this world in such a way that many of our needs are met only through interdependence on fellow believers and our singular dependence on God. When a leader earnestly comes to God in prayer for wisdom and direction, he will be blessed and God will be glorified.

The God connection for leaders

John 15:7-8 (NIV) –  “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”

The only way you can play a significant role in the kingdom of God is if you allow Him to live through you, or abide in you. It clearly says in John 15:5 that without Him you can do nothing, with him you can do anything. You can live out a godly life as an example to those you lead. You can also lead those around you how to love the Lord and each other. Jesus calls you to produce much fruit. To do that, you need only pray often and be in the word.
