Live in a manner worthy of the Lord and become fully pleasing to Him bearing fruit in every good work.  – Col 1:10

Reflection. Jesus never forced anyone to comply with His teachings.  He simply asks for our obedience that our joy may be full.  All He asks is that we make a reasonable effort to be good.

Prayer. Lord Jesus, help me never to measure my morality by the standards of an unbelieving world.  Let the Gospel be the source of my beliefs.
