“Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven.” Matthew 6:1
What type of ‘power struggles’ am I engaged in? Am I overly concerned with the opinions and approval of others?
Lord, it is so easy to empasize ‘doing’ over ‘being’. Help me to remember my value lies not in personal accomplishments but in the fact that I am your beloved child. Amen.
