I am flying home today. I have made a habit out of reading my bible on the plane. I recently observed that when I read the bible people avoid looking my way. There is open seating on Southwest airlines and the middle seat next to me frequently stays empty. I have heard it said to not talk about politics and religion, which is sad because it hinders spreading the Gospel message.
Today I opened my bible to Isaiah it reads:
"The Spirit of the sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor"
I have been praying recently for my "Shoulder the Cross" ministry. This verse really puts things in perspective for me. I questioned my own morality this week with some gift cards. Verse 8 says
"For I, the LORD, love justice. I hate robbery and wrongdoing. I will faithfully reward my people for their suffering and make an everlasting covenant with them."
This verse speaks to immorality. When the devil places impure thoughts in my head, it is verses like this that help keep me strong minded and moral.
