I receive a daily devotional via email every morning and it offers a reading lesson and then at the end of the reading, it always offers a quote. Yesterday's quote I liked a lot so I thought I would share it with you.
"An orderly life is like an orderly closet;
it looks good and it serves its intended purpose."
Daily Devotional Day by Day with Charles Swindoll
Today's ending quote is:
"Whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant"
The reading was about serving others and how our society had gotten away from serving each other due to not wanting to "get involved".
I read this email every morning and some times, a lot of the times forward it to Aaron and he reads it and we discuss. Ironically, it always seems to be about something Aaron or I are struggling with so we always take it in and try to change our day based on the particular day's lesson. It's funny how things happen that way.
For instance, when one seems to be having a pity party for themselves, they are always reminded about how it "could be worse, and someone does have it worse". Funny how the reality check is given even when NOT asked for. I believe in those signs and embrace them to make myself a better person.
What do you do to "check yourself"?
Volunteer work is one thing I do to "check myself" and also my daily devotionals. I think it is wise to challenge yourself to be a better/wiser person. Why not? What would be the purpose of life if we aren't all trying to be better members of society?
OK, my lesson of the day is over! ;-)
Have a SPLENDIDO Friday!
