“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” 1 Timothy 2: 1. 2.

Our society very often considers success as accumulation of material things. This is not the biblical point of view. God prefers that we spend time taking care of our heart. Our character, our thoughts of love, words of love, and actions of love are the only things that we will bring with us to heaven. All other accomplishments are insignificant. And this is why we need to promote, with the apostle Paul, prayer, thanksgiving, peace, godliness and honesty.

Peter Scotese said, “Integrity is not a 90 percent thing, not a 95 percent thing; either you have it or you don’t.”

I invite you to think about the foundational values of our life. Let’s be 100% honest, 100% prayer oriented, 100% thankful. Let’s be 100% on God’s side.
