I was reading about God's creation of man and woman. The study note read, "Man is a spiritual being who is not only body, but also soul and spirit. He is a moral being whose intelligence, perception, and self-determination far exceed that of any other earthly being.
These properties or traits possessed by mankind and his prominence in the order of creation imply the intrinsic worth, not only of the family of mankind, but also of each human individual." What follows is what spoke to me personally. It goes on to say, "Capacity and ability constitute accountability and responsibility. We should never be pleased to dwell on a level of existence lower than that on which God has made it possible for us to dwell. We should strive to be the best we can be and to reach the highest levels we can reach. To do less is to be unfaithful stewards of the life entrusted to us."
This spoke to me personally as I feel I have not been doing this ... striving to be my best but settling for just getting by. It is what drove me to the Bible this morning in an effort to dig even deeper and come closer to my Creator. I challenge you today to do the same.
Have a blessed day! As always, I am praying for you and I ask you to pray for me.
