Today's Scripture *May 1 & 2, 2010*
- Today's Scripture *May 1 & 2, 2010*Zephaniah 3: 3-4Its leaders are like roaring lions
Hunting for their victims.
Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time,
Who by dawn have left no trace of their prey.Its prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain.
Its priests defile the Temple by disobeying God’s instructions.Leading God's people is a privilege and a responsibility. Through Zephaniah, God rebuked many different leaders in Jerusalem--judges, prophets, and priests--because of their callous disobedience, irresponsibility, and sin. If you are a leader in the church, consider yourself in a privileged position, but be careful. God holds you responsible for the purity of your actions, the quality of your example, and the truth of both your words and how you manage them.Lord God, we thank You for the privilege of leading Your people.Help us to recognize that we all lead someone! No matter who we are--someone is watching us, someone is observing our actions and our words.May we lead with integrity, honor, and humility. Guide us in all ways and like Your servant David, "Search our hearts and purify our minds" that we might serve others that they may see Your face in all we do. In Jesus' Name we pray, Amen..Be blessed this weekend!In His Service,April Please do not remove when forwarding
