Hmmm.... What Should I Do Today

Do you like lists?  You probably can tell that I love them.  I like writing down what I need to do and then having the satisfaction of crossing each of those things off the list one by one.

Yesterday in early service, our little choir sang the song "Grace Alone."  I was inspired by two thoughts:

1)  Everything good that we do is by God's grace.  We are alive by His grace.   We are given our circumstances and our families and our jobs by that same grace.  And grace is what compels us to do the good things we do for others all day long.

2)  We have a standing daily to-do list:
  • Make promises.
  • Pray.
  • Take steps of faith.
  • Make a difference. 
  • Climb mountains.
  • Shine hope.
  • Leave blessings behind.
  • Reach souls.
  • Teach.
  • Share His peace.
  • Say loving words.
  • Wipe away tears.
  • Turn sorrow to praise.  

Not a bad list for today.   As we do these things, let's realize that it's all because of God's grace.
