Popular using your influence for the good of others

Popular – Day 15

As we close out this devotional with the consideration of using our position for the glory of God and the good of others, how will you choose to use your influence? As we close out today’s devotional and will need to find a new one tomorrow let’s grab hold of the nuggets we have received through these 15 days in order to be able to live our lives for the glory of God and the good of others! It was also interesting because even though I searched for “dad” it invites middle school students to join the devotional. I am excited to see how this devotional will play into our series of devotionals for dad and how God will choose to use it through me to help us be the dads He purposed and created and planned for us to be! Even as dads we need encouragement to recognize the influence we have. As dads, we need to also use it for the good of others! Popular is a 15-day devotional! Popular comes to us from a group name reThink Group.


Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:


‘As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. ‘

Proverbs 27:19

God’s Word meets us right where we are at and allows us to reflect on His truth, His standards, His love, His instructions, and His direction.

Let’s be the dads who prepare our hearts to be ready for each day! Let’s be the dads who allow Jesus to clean our hearts and to help prune and remove things that shouldn’t be in our hearts! Let’s be the dads who allow Jesus to pull up and pull out bitter roots and replace them with forgiveness! Let’s be the dads who allow the Holy Spirit to create a new heart in us so that we can choose to live our lives for the glory of God and the good of others! Let’s consider the reflection that is being seen and how we may need to lean in and lean on God more to help us get healthy in our hearts! Let’s be the dads who can see the lights on the dash when there are things we see in our lives that reflect that our hearts are out of alignment! Let’s be the dads who can see the warning signs when our lives are reflecting things that demonstrate that we have work to do or maintenance required for our hearts! Let’s be the dads who take care of the words we speak as it tells us about the state of our heart for from the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks! Let’s be the dads who remember and consider how we are living our lives for we know from God’s Word that our lives reflect our hearts!
