Show the love of God through the simplest of acts.

Far too often we forget how important the little things are.

Our lives are supposed to reflect the heart of Christ and we should live as an example of Christ-likeness in everything we do. So what do we need to do? We must pay closer attention to our thoughts, weighing up every thought and asking ourselves “does this glorify God or not?” How many times have you missed opportunities to show the love of God through the simplest of acts? I know that i have missed far too many and still seem to find myself reflecting on how quickly i have dismissed a thought with an excuse that was pathetic. I know that i need to take every thought captive but how easily the mind wanders and loses focus.
If i was to always put God first in my life then i would be living in his will, and oh how i want to do this – it takes practice. So i will leave you with a couple of scriptures to reflect on:-

“in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Pro.3:6)
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Rom.12:2)
