Thought for the Day...habits (part 2)

Welcome to Thought for the Day.
(If you'd like to see the the first part of this post, click here.)
Today's verses comes from our pastor's message on a previous week.
It was something that I needed to hear, so I thought I'd share it with you today.

"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age"
Titus 2:11-12

So how do we strive to live godly lives? 
Let's look at scripture for advice:

Put God First
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, 
and all these things will be given to you as well."
Matthew 6:33

Firmly Plant God's Will in Our Minds
"Don't not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will."
Romans 12:2

God Calls Us to Have Integrity and to Be Honest
"Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much."
Luke 16:10

God Wants Us to Enter His Rest
"There remains, then, a Sabbath rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from their works,  just as God did for him. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest..."
Hebrews 4:9-11

Our pastor's message was a great reminder for me:
 put God first...the rest will fall into place.

Have a blessed weekend!
