Question for reflection:
Where in your life are you resisting God through complacency? What change might you initiate to proactively mend and make amends, with God and with those around you?
Prayer for the day:
Give me ears to hear your direction, God, and then grant me courage to live beyond my complacency. Make me wise enough to discern your ways and follow your advice. Thank you for the safety of your promises. Amen.
~ Jonathan Shively, Executive Director, Congregational Life Ministries
