Ponder and Muse

I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; (3) I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. Psalm 101:2-3

This verse has me pondering and musing on my heart. It's a great reminder of the influence I have over my family, the impact I have in their lives. I must walk with integrity wherever I am but it is at home that it matters most!

The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.
 ~Thomas Babington Macaulay

May I offer a simple prayer for all of us?

Help me walk a blamesless path before you. Strengthen my faithfulness, enpower my character with yours and set my eyes on worthy things. Let my life reflect your life before my family and all I come into contact with. - Amen!

What do you think of this verse?

Good verse and thought Jay.  I do not know who said it but I have never forgotten it: "What good is it if I (as a pastor) win the whole world and lose my family?"  That has been a guiding line for me.

Thanks Bill....appreciate that!

Amen.  And we need to be so aware of what's going on around and about us, and showing the love...and superiority... of the Lord in our hearts AND EYES... where people will truly see us.  I definitely need that.  My facial expressions give me away nearly always, so I can't be sloppy.

Aware is a great word...so often we check out...not a good thing for any leader to do! Bless you sista!

Amen. I really appreciate this prayer and I echo it.

As husbands, fathers, and children of God, people need to see us walk upright and blameless.
Jay Cookingham said…
Thanks Dusty...upright and blameless, good traits for a dad!

If we were never found it, we would still know ... and God.

oops, meant to say "found out"
Jay Cookingham said…
LOL Susan...I thought that was what you meant! I'm so glad that He comes and finds me. Bless you!
