When the Path Is Long
What is your primary leadership role? Where do you need to show up each day, giving the best of your time and energy to live, love, and lead like Jesus? God is interested in every part of our lives. As we depend on Him, He will pour His strength and wisdom into us, and help us persevere.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.—2 Peter 1:5-8
Prayer: God, may these qualities strengthen me in my inner being so that more and more my outward actions reflect the very character and life of Jesus. May others increasingly see You in me, I ask in His name, amen.
