This piece is excerpted from a Corollaries segment, called “Daily Attitudes.” Something I need to read every day.

  • I rejoice in Christ.
  • I thank God the Father for every good gift from his hand and for every opportunity to draw near to him.
  • I live to glorify God and serve my neighbor, beginning with my spouse.
  • I feel compassion toward the needy and choose to show love to all, especially to the family of faith.
  • I am guided by the truth of Scripture and commit myself to follow Jesus wherever he may lead me.
  • I depend upon the Holy Spirit for strength as I breathe the heavenly air of his words.
  • Having Christ, I have it all; I seek to share his divine fullness with everyone around me.

Read all of Ron’s post:

I am grateful to the Lord, as I mentioned a moment ago, for the responsibility placed on me. It is my prayer He is pleased with what I am doing. I am grateful He has given me the ability to write, to think quickly and deeply, to challenge error, but to do so with compassion, understanding and without a threatening disposition. I am grateful to the Lord for a thick-skin. Time and again people try to penetrate, but I know my standing in the Lord’s presence. I know my strengths, and I know my weaknesses. I know what is true about me, and I know what is false about those things said concerning me. For me to be offended, as one sister said, one would need to use a two-by-four against me. I refuse to be troubled by that which is not the truth. In fact, it is only truth that I want to penetrate, and especially the Lord’s truth.
