Thought of the Day October 3, 2023 Our choice

By 10:05 AM

 Living in the world, it is hard to be free from the world's process. We grow up with the world's value and ways of doing things. But we have to remind ourselves that, while in the world, we are not of the world. Though a creature of this planet, we are citizens of the Kingdom of God. God tells us that his ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not ours. As sons and daughters of the Father, sharing his life, we are called to put on the mind of God and the ways of the Lord. Love is to replace hate. Humility is to be more important than pride or self. Forgiveness is greater than revenge. Mercy is before justice. Service of others is more valuable than lording it over others. The way of the Lord is the way to eternal life. The way of the world leads to eternal destruction. There is no third way for us. Either the way of the Lord or the way of the world. It is our choice.
