“And they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness” (Ephesians 4:19).

The deeds of the sinful flesh are evident.  In this world there is the propensity of living for yourself.  Many walk this road.  This is the reality: God has created you for a purpose beyond yourself.  This is the road set before you.  Will you walk the road less traveled?  Do not be greedy for the life of this world.  Life is already yours.  Walk humbly with your Maker and in Him live true life.

Lord, what is before me is easy to see.  There are many around me who eat, drink, and make merry.  Guide me, O Lord, to live this life which You have given me and help me to not be carried away by this world.  Help me Lord so that I may not wander from the road You have set before me.  Teach me, Lord, and I will learn.  O God, may I not live with what the world offers, but in You, find the length, breadth and depth of true life.

Lord Jesus, You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Guide me this day, O Lord, to see the new life You have placed before me.  May I know its worth and value and be led by You to live the new life.  In and through all things, renew my mind and guide my feet so that I may always remain in the light of Your countenance and be guided by Your Spirit through all things.  Amen.
