“At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent” (Daniel 6:4).

A professional young man was interviewing for a position in a thriving business.
He had a well- kept appearance and made a good first-impression on the owner.

He was well-prepared and brought in a top-notch resume in which he listed references-
– including his pastor, his Bible study teacher, and a church deacon-all who knew him well.

The business owner, also a Christian unbeknownst to the young man, studied the resume carefully for several minutes and then said:

“Young man, I appreciate these recommendations from the people who know you well in your church. However, what I would really like is a word of recommendation from people who know you during the week as well.”

Unfortunately, there is oftentimes a big difference in the way people live their lives on Sunday compared to the rest of the week.

People tend to act differently in a church service from what they do out in the real world.

But the truth is:
The principles and biblical truths we hear and determine to act out on Sunday should also be practiced throughout the week.

Daniel was a perfect example of being consistent in his relationship with both God and man.
As mentioned in the verse above, his enemies tried to find some fault with him, but none could be found.

Would your church friends be shocked to find you living your life completely difference from what you do on Sunday morning?

The old adage is often true:
“Actions speak louder than words!”

Ask the Lord to help you-
– walk consistently with Him all throughout the week.

Pray that your life would be a daily witness to others who don’t know Jesus until you meet Him again one day

Mother’s translation

“I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also” (2 Timothy 1:5).

There is a story of four ministers who were discussing various Bible versions and which ones they liked best.

One liked the King James Version because of its eloquent literary style.
Another one preferred the Revised Version of 1881 because it provided the most literal translation of Hebrew and Greek.
The third minister felt that the New King James Version was the most readable and easiest to understand of all.

But the fourth minister didn’t say a thing.

Finally, one of them asked for his opinion on which version of the Bible he liked best.

The man replied, “I like my mother’s translation the best.”

The others were shocked by his answer, and one of them asked, “Did your mother translate the Bible into her own version?”

“Yes, sort of,” the man replied. “She translated it into her life, and it was the most convincing version I’ve ever seen.”

If you are a believer, people are watching your life.
And quite frankly, your life is the only Bible some people will ever read!

In order for our lives to serve as godly examples for others-
– you and I must act out God’s Word every single day.

You can be certain that-
– your children, grandchildren, friends, co-workers, and neighbours are watching how you live your life as a Christian.

Are you a living example of God’s Word to those around you?

Pray that your life would be a living example of God’s Word-
– so that you can point others to salvation by faith in Jesus Christ.

Ask the Lord to direct your words and actions so you can be a godly influence—no matter the circumstance.
