Hi! I might be posting Devo's every second or every Tuesday. I get them from a group, called; "Bright Lights." Bright, stands for: Being Radiant in Godliness, Holiness, and Testimony.
Here we go!
2 Peter 1:5-9
"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness/virtue, and to goodness/virtue knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you posses these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."
"Virtue is the power of a life that is in harmony with the holy standards of God." - Bright Lights
Virtue starts at home. Virtue plays a part of what other people will think about you, and your family.
You can either be trusted by your actions, or be un-stable to other people by your actions. Your actions give a good, or bad report on the people who teach you. (Your parents mostly)
Say something bad happened.
People could say about you; "She would never do that. I trust her. She could be in the place where it happened, but she would never have participated."
"Aw...I always knew she would get in trouble. She has always been mischievous. Yeah, no, she probably did it."
Virtue must be consistent. Someone might say; "(your name) was really nice today!" and then the next day, uh, not so good.
You can't be good, one day, then bad, the other, according to your mood. I have a hard time with that, a lot.
We read from Proverbs 31:10-31.
You can read it if you like! It's about a virtuous woman.
We are making a poem, in alphabetical order, according to what the verses say. I'll post it on here as soon as I get a copy. Thanks for reading!
