Day 3: Becoming a Disciple Worth Multiplying. Today was crazy. Our youngest foster baby woke up with a fever, so my husband stayed home from work to be with him. When I picked up the 1 year old from daycare they said “He has been really fussy all afternoon and is tugging on that left ear.” Needless to say, our evening looked a lot like two screaming babies and two adults about to pull their hair out. I did finally get a little bit of time once we put our oldest foster son down to bed to look at the quiz by Wesley and to take some time to read through Matthew and do some soul searching prayer time with God.
I thought that the quiz from Wesley was really interesting and gave a different look at my walk with God. I think sometimes we just think that if we don’t steal or cheat or curse that we are doing alright in our walk with Christ, but reading something like this quiz can really make you look at the “smaller” things that we tend to overlook. Questions like, “Am I a slave to dress, friends, work, or habits?” “Am I self-conscious, self-pitying, or self-justifying?” or “How do I spend my spare time?” really make you look at your life from a different perspective. The Bible says that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. That means that we ALL have places that we need to grow in our walk with God. The verses from Matthew that I decided to write out and meditate on tonight were:
(5:6) Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (7:7-8) Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
