How to train yourself to live a godly life.
Today's devotion is based on 1 Timothy 4:7, "Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly."
You have probably heard some version of the saying, 'Watch your thoughts; they become your words. Watch your words; they become your actions. Watch your actions; they shape your life.' Today's verse is a reminder to dissect the casual phrases that make their way into our speech and reflect on our attitude and heart-setting. It is often helpful to ask, 'Does what I am hearing or thinking align with God's word and the hope of the gospel?'
Please pray with me: Loving God, as the heavens are high above the earth, your ways are higher than my ways, and your thoughts are higher than my thoughts or the thoughts of this current age. Give me discipline and spiritual acuity so that I may become more godly. Amen.
