who's pushing you?

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." Ephesians 4:29

"Stop pushing me!", she pouted.  But Tommy had good reason. The  teacher had come to collect her class, and Sally was facing the back of the line chatting with her friend.  After patiently waiting, for at least 4 seconds, Tommy nudged her.  Sally was turned around and too comfortable doing the wrong thing, and needed a push in the right direction.

It's easy to get turned around in the wrong direction in life.  Instead of building others up, shredding them to bits can be easier and more satisfying at the moment.  And gossip as opposed to prayer, can be the quickest words to trickle from our eager lips.

Lord, when i get turned around pleasing and serving myself and others before You, please have something or someone push me back in the right direction.  I want to serve You and bring You glory.

have a moving-filled day!
