So what do we do?
We (you and I) need to make sure that these things are not apart of our lives, part of how we operate.
Even if you think you are far away from doing any of these things, just take the time today to ask God to reveal any hint of these attitudes or actions that maybe in your life and you don’t know it.
Today the text calls us to reflect, and repent of these things that might be apart of our lives… even in a small way.
Here is an example of how to pray concerning this.
Lord, if I am a fool, I don’t know it… please show me today the thoughts and actions I maybe living that need to be flushed out of my life because they are foolish.
If I make excuses so I will not have to do a task (26:13) please convict me of that so I can change. If I meddle, stop me from doing it, if I mask my hatred with sweetness, call me on that. If I am digging a pit for someone else to fall into reveal that to me, so I can change before I fall into it myself.
Lord… show me how you really feel and help me get rid of those attitudes and actions in my life that you do not like. In Jesus name, amen,
