The Good Life Is The Godly Life!
Do you want to have a good life? Actually, not just a good life, but great one? The Lord shows us the way. We must watch our tongue....not JUST watch it, but reign it in, bring it into submission to God’s will. If we don’t, we will destroy so much with that often uncontrolled member. We need to spend our days serving others, serving God, and doing good. And....we need to be Peacemakers (they shall be blessed and be called the children of God -Matthew 5:9).
"For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?"
(1 Peter 3:10-13)
When we follow God’s will, He will hear our prayers. His eyes will be watching over us, His face will always be looking toward us. No one can ruin our life unless we allow them to. It is a joy to live “the Godly life," to be able to pray often, knowing that He hears His obedient children. As His children, we should cherish these good days, seek peace, and serve with gladness.
