QTVOTD: Leading my family with stability…

“Take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:17b-18 -> me:  This passage today (finished 2nd Peter) was a great reminder of the focus I must have through this time.  It is a focus that should carry us to the end of our days but I just needed to re-hear it.  My stability needed to be in the law of the Lord, not the error of lawless people.  Dwelling on God’s word day and night will be the way that I grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In all things that I do, I do to the glory of Jesus alone….but I must ‘do’!  I must be about the work of my King.  It is easy to sit back in our nice home and rest comfortably away from the virus; but am I reaching out to those who need God?   Am I reaching out to those who just need checked in on and possibly get the opportunity to share the goodness God brings in times like this?  I am not doing all that I can, and I am not currently leading my family in this way either.  Spending time in prayer is good and that communion with my Savior is precious, but I also need to act on the prods of the Holy Spirit to aspire to please my Savior in ALL things.
