1 Peter 3:10-12
For “He who would love life and see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; Let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
-Everybody likes to live the good life though there are a lot of misconceptions in the society today. Many believe that having everything that money can buy is the answer to all our problems. Contrary to this believe, often times do we see that the most miserable people in the world are the rich and famous. According to the scriptures; the good life stems from submitting to Gods’ will through our words and deeds. To seek peace and pursue it; for the peacemakers are blessed; for they are children of God. To speak the truth all the time, and hold fast honesty and integrity in our dealings and interactions. To choose kind words all the time; even when we are provoked by cunning utterances and evil deeds. To return evil with good and not evil with evil. To speak words of love that edify one another. To confess our trespasses to one another and pray for one another; that we may be healed, for the effective; fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16). To be reconciled with one another and forgive those who offend us; so that we too may be forgiven by our Father. To turn away from evil and do good always; for God is holy and requires us to live holy lives. To pursue holiness as we are chained with Christ and co-heirs with Him, that we may obtain His promises. If then we are children of God, we receive His blessings for His love and grace for us is everlasting.
We thank You Jesus and bless Your holy name for Your everlasting love and mercy upon our lives, families, societies and nation. You have always protected us, provided for us, directed us and sustained us by Your merciful love. We thank You Jesus and bless Your holy name. Help us Father to be reconciled with our neighbours and to always seek peace. Journey with us Lord in all things and strengthen our relationship with You and our neighbours through love. Bless us indeed Father and expand our territories. Our Father Who at in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from all evil. For thine is the kingdom the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen
