Application: A good relationship with God depends upon good relationships with others.
Prayer: Father, thanks that You have forgiven me all my offenses on the basis of Christ's death on my behalf; I will forgive others as graciously as You have forgiven me. Amen.
Application: What do you owe God in terms of time, money, love, service, and strength? Are you giving Him your all, to the extent that you have to trust Him for everything, or only giving what is convenient and comfortable?
Prayer: Lord God, You are worth of my all; show me where I may be holding back, and pry my grabby little fingers off that which I will despise when I see things from Your perspective. Amen.
Matthew 20:25 Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it
over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead,
whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
