Daily Devotional for Monday November 06, 2017

Scripture:

Philippians 4:9 (NASB) The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Observation:

I thought about mentoring. Who can I get to know? Who can give me some good advice and words of wisdom? Who can I partner with? Then it hit me. I was thinking a lot of what that person would do for me and my life. Well, the word partner to me was completely lost. It became about me. What about me mentoring someone else? What did I bring to the table? I needed to take a good look at my life and see if there was anything that I could offer someone else. Every one of us have learned things through the ups and downs of life. We have lived, and I bet that each of us have some great advice to share. Paul tells us to keep putting into practice what we learned from him and that the God of peace will be with us. Loving one another is the best thing we can “practice.” Pray that God sends someone into our lives that we can partner with to mentor each other. 

Application:

Personal Application: Continue spending time with the Lord daily. Sow righteousness and reap the fruit of God's unfailing love.

Family Devotional: Read this chapter to your family. Ask them if anything spoke to them as you read. Talk about their answers and show them that one important aspect of this chapter is that we must continue to spend time with the Lord and keep our hearts focused on His plans and purposes. Pray for them.
