“Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”

— 1 Peter 3:10-11

Is there anyone that does not desire to love life and see good days? If there is, I’ve yet to meet them. The New Living Translation records it, “If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days.”

Yes! I do.

Thankfully Peter gives us the equation to an enjoyable life with many happy days ahead. Keep your tongue from speaking evil and telling lies. Turn away from evil, do good and seek to bring and maintain peace.

Today’s goal

Enjoy life, have a happy day… Don’t gossip and tell lies. Turn away from evil and seek for opportunities to do good.

Devotional

We are a chosen generation and royal priesthood. Not because we’ve done anything special or were worthy of being chosen, but because we obtained mercy and grace from God. Therefore, having been graciously chosen, it’s time to grow up!

That’s right! It’s time to grow up and be just what the Lord chose you to be. He didn’t chose me because I was holy, but now that I’m one of His chosen, I ought to (by His strength) endeavor to be holy. And then, as a holy vessel, I can be a light to those that have yet to put their faith in Him.

Today’s goal

Grow Up! Be a light. Obey those that are over you.

“According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” What a beautiful reality. Not only that, we, “by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation.” The guy who, early in his life as a follower of Jesus, put his foot in his mouth a whole bunch, grew to be quite eloquent. That alone gives me hope.

Today’s goal

Rest your hope fully upon the grace of God. Not in your own efforts to be a good person.
