Good morning all,
The word of the day is "chattel." The Apostle Paul talked about being a slave to sin, as opposed to a slave to righteousness. He knew that the people reading his letters were continually struggling with surrendering to God the stuff that hindered them from a better relationship with him.
You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness."
My question is: what are the things in your life that are most important? That could sometimes be very different from what we tell others or display in our lives. Even when you hide your feelings from the rest of the world, God can still search your heart and knows you to the core. I pray today that you chat with God and set your thoughts and actions on what is important to him. Take some time to give to God the stuff that controls you. Be no longer a slave to anything that is not of God.
Praying for you,
