FINALLY….a feel good Scripture!!
“….make every effort to add integrity to your faith; and to integrity add knowledge; to knowledge add self-control; to self-control add endurance; to endurance add godliness; to godliness add Christian affection; and to Christian affection add love. If you have these qualities and they are increasing, it demonstrates that your knowledge about our Lord Jesus Christ is living and productive.”
This makes me feel warm and fuzzy! I’m pretty sure I have integrity, knowledge, endurance, affection and love.
Self-control? Not sure I have a lot of that. I’d describe myself more as passionate than self-controlled. I hope this doesn’t get me in trouble with the Big Guy.
Godliness? I am not even close to godly. There are people in my life who are so close to godliness, I pale in comparison. I could only hope to be as close to God as they are.
Today, I am overjoyed to have a Scripture I feel great about and love the message is teaches. Tomorrow is the last reading. 🙏🏻
