This guy’s reaction when someone tried to steal the gas cans out of the back of his truck should be an example to all of us. In that moment he set aside his fleshly reaction/first instinct and instead chose to follow the Holy Spirit’s leading.
I wonder how many times I have missed the chance to be the hands & feet of Jesus because I was too busy listening to the worldly voice in my head instead of HIS voice in my heart.
The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ – Matthew 25:40 NASB
I come to you now and ask for your forgiveness for the times I have ignored your prompting & stubbornly chose to go my own way. I beseech you to not give up on me but instead to increasingly give me more opportunities for your light to shine through me into the darkness of this world.
