I enjoy playing instruments and I’m sure many of you do too. I play mostly flute, but I also play piano and enjoy them both!
I take flute lessons along with several other girls from a young lady in our church. She has taught us many things over the years, but one of the main things she has taught us is to keep our focus on God, and to give Him the glory. After all, God is the One Who gave us the talent and skill to play, but it’s just so easy to forget that and take the credit ourselves! I find that when I play for others, I think more about them and their needs instead of myself.

It’s true. Whether or not you like it, or whether or not you are even aware of it, YOU are being watched. Which means, of course, that you are setting an example. The question is, what kind of example are you setting? As Christians, we need to be sure that we are being a good testimony to the world. That way, our unsaved neighbors, relatives, or acquaintances won’t look at us and say, “They say that they’re Christians, but look at what they do!” This is probably one of the easier and more obvious areas in which we are to be an example.

Beep . . . Beep . . . BEEP!!! Shutting off my alarm clock, I rolled out of bed. “Could it be morning already?” I asked myself. I was not too happy about leaving the warmth of my cozy covers. Grabbing my Bible and journal, I headed downstairs, on the lookout for a quiet place to have my devotions. I knew that the very best way to start off my day would be by spending some time alone with my Lord.

Darling Virtuous Daughters,
As the beginning of the new year is generally a time when we all do a good clean up, I thought of some tips to help us clean up our spiritual lives as well...

I remember there was a time when all I would drink was milk. Now I enjoy milk, but I really liked it then. I kept exclaiming, “I can’t believe I’m drinking this much milk. I’ll just drink one huge glass at a time.” Now I know why I enjoyed milk so much....

Sometime ago, the Lord impressed upon me how wonderful it would be to spend a whole day focused on Him. Life is so busy. I make time for eating, sleeping, exercising, even shopping and vacations. But could I take a whole day off from my normal responsibilities and focus totally on the Lord?
I told my family about the idea and they were very excited. It occurred to them, that if I was very sick for a day, they would all manage without me. They liked the idea so much, they even offered to deliver meals and snacks upstairs to my bedroom!

What do you think of when you picture a faithful person? The thought comes to mind of one who continually goes on doing what is good and right, in spite of difficulties or trials. The Webster’s 1828 dictionary describes faithfulness as
“Firm in adherence to the truth and
to the duties of religion; firmly adhering to duty;
of true fidelity; loyal; constant; not fickle.”

The other day when I started chapter 11 of Hebrews, (I was having my quiet time), I immediately recognized the first verses. My brother was memorizing them for a program he’s in. I had asked him for the passage a little while before because I had decided I wanted to type a letter on faith using that verse. I rushed to my laptop and started typing.

If I had to tell you the number one reason I give, it is in response to all that God has given me. Because everything I have is a gift from God. Therefore I feel motivated to give back to God by giving to my neighbor, my church, and people in need. God calls us to take care of those in need. He calls us to care for the sick, the lonely, the hungry, the homeless, and the hopeless.

As we look at the subject of etiquette, it would be wise to go to the Bible as our source of wisdom. Etiquette books can be a help as we seek the proper way to do things, but if etiquette does not begin in the heart, it will be merely an outward show. Our etiquette needs to be genuine and prompted by a love for the Lord. As we learn and apply what God’s Word says about our interactions with others, we will be treating those around us in a polite, godly way.
