"Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge." (Prov. 23:12)
Dear God, help me this day to examine my heart, my life, and my thoughts in light of your wisdom reflected in this text. Help me to respond to You and Your Word with my heart. Help me to life a changed life which reflects your will and your way. Help me to think like Jesus and to be shaped by his attitude.
I do not want to act merely out of a sense of duty or obligation. My desire is that my heart, thoughts, and life might be set on things above. I regret that sometimes I do good things only because someone needs something, or out of a sense of guilt because no one else will do it. I pray that I will always have the right attitude and the right motives. I pray that my service to You and to others will be always out of love as a reflection of my relationship with You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
