DOING OUR BEST! – Psalm 19:14 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Psalm 19:14 – Devotional

Psalm 19:14

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

As I reflect back on my boyhood days, I feel blessed for the time I spent as a Boy Scout. The values and qualities that we were taught have played a vital part of the person I have become. As I was thinking about the Boy Scout Oath we took at the beginning of each meeting, I only wish that each Scout lived up to the oath.

“On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help others at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

Truly honorable people recognize a duty to God. It is not that God owes us, but much more that we owe Him our best. If Jesus gave His life for us, we need to commit ourselves to serve Him with the best we have. We are also to serve others. One of the strongest messages that Jesus stressed was to give to others.

How we behave when no one is looking reveals the true person we are. We may keep up appearances when others are looking, but how do we act when we are alone with ourselves? We need to be aware that the Lord knows the thoughts and intents of our heart — He is always looking for our best!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!
