Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, that I may honor you. With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God. I will give glory to your name forever. Psalm 86:11-12
I can remember many times in school that I simply learned something long enough to pass the tests. I had many tricks like silly little sayings and acrostics. Whatever worked. But when I read this scripture, all I can think is that I don’t want to learn it just for a moment.
I want to truly learn Your ways and seek Your truth each day, Lord. To live in a way that points others to You rather than living selfishly for my own desires.
I want to have a pure heart. A heart that always seeks You. A heart that doesn’t cling to negative attitudes, but honors You with every thought, word, and action.
I want to begin each day praising You, my Lord, and glorifying Your name for the rest of my days because of the great love You have for me. Because of Your forgiveness and my salvation!
