Daily Bible Reading for Wednesday, January 24th:

The Influence of Godly People

Godly People will find favor from God and man

Godly People will find favor from God and man

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man. – Proverbs 3:3-4 ESV

Godly people should be living with an attitude of mercy and truth (Proverbs 3:3 KJV). It’s not genuine until it is rooted deep in our heart and reflected the actions that others can see.

Godly people not only try to love the sinner, they try to help them see the truth of their sinful ways

Godly people not only try help the unfortunate ones with their physical needs, they try to help them with their spiritual needs.

Godly people not only work quietly serving him, they make sure God’s light is very visible.

Godly people not only want to please God, they try to influence others to please him.

God need his children to do the work during this earthly lifetime. The “finding of favor in the sight of God and man” (Proverbs 3:4) sounds a lot like Luke 2:52 where Jesus growth caused him to increase in statue in the eyes of God and men. We can see then, that not only is it Godly to be influential – it is Christlike.

What are some ways you can become more Christlike in the eyes of your peers today?
