Tee Up

Today’s Quote

“When we practice God’s teachings, we are teeing up the ball for others to participate.”~TB

Assist

Like a caddie to a golfer, we are to be like cheerful helpers to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Setting up the put, we have to step back and let others hit the ball so they too can experience a relationship with God. The role is to assist, not force. By exuding the love of Christ, our actions are to be synonymous with His, so that the example set forth points to our Maker and not to man. While the actions displayed seldom get external credit, trust that God sees all and our faithful actions are on His record.

Sabotage

When you let pride and ego drive the cart, issues like judgment, religious behavior, and acting come into play, misguiding the direction of the put. Friends, we cannot hit the ball for believers. Do not proselytize or beat the Gospel on people’s heads. God does not need a defender, or do you not remember how you came to Christ? Surely no one held you to the fire, so avoid doing that to your peers. Allow the Lord to work in the hearts of others by exemplifying the grace, joy, and mercy He shares with us.

Today’s Question

Are you like a faithful caddie pointing to God or are you forcing the ball into a Hellish sandtrap?

Enjoy the reading

Psalm 113

1 Praise the LORD ! Yes, give praise, O servants of the LORD . Praise the name of the LORD ! 
2 Blessed be the name of the LORD now and forever.
3 Everywhere—from east to west— praise the name of the LORD . 
4For the LORD is high above the nations; his glory is higher than the heavens. 
5 Who can be compared with the LORD our God, who is enthroned on high? 
6 He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth.
7 He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump.
8 He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people! 
9He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the LORD !
