Father, help us to live our lives in a way that honors You, every day, in everything we do and say.
Oh Lord, I am challenged with something my pastor said on Sunday. "A coach never asks his team to give them their best 45%, he asks for 100% effort!"
I believe God wants the same effort from us. He doesn't want us to live Godly lives part of the time, or only accept part of the Gospel. He asks for 100% effort!
Oh God, I am thankful that You call us to obedience, and at the same time expect imperfection. Help us not to feel guilty for the times we have not given you our 100% effort. Help us to instead to do better next time.
In Jesus' name, Amen
