Dave's Mom found these questions. Pretty convicting stuff!!!!
Do I have pride?
Am I dead to all desire for praise?
Do I have the presence of God in my life?
Am I free from the fear of man?
Do I embrace the cross in every way it presents itself to me?
Am I willing to give up my ease and my convenience to minister to others?
Am I ready to give up a point when I am contradicted?
Am I content with whatever is or may be, feeling that God, the Author of all events, does and will do all for my good?
Puritan writer, John Fletcher
I am having some struggles that are glaringly evident when I read this list. Of course I want praise- don't we all?? My prayer for today is that I seek God's approval - and measure "success" in His eyes. It is not important how much art I sell.....it is important how I lived this day showing love & obedience to our precious Lord and to others.
