NOTE: Somehow this got missed This is devotion from Feb 21.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3
The older a person is the more he or she might start thinking about their 'bucket list' or those things they hope to do before the Lord calls them home to Heaven. I have accomplished a few on mine such as tandem skydiving, riding in an airboat in Everglades, hiking to the Hollywood sign, hot air balloon ride, going to the Rose Parade and I still have several to go.
Have you ever thought about a 'bucket list for God'? I am not the original person to think of this idea. I heard it somewhere and thought it was very cool. A 'bucket list' is more of a self centered thing whereas a 'bucket list for God' would be things you want to do for the Kingdom. Each person would have to search their own hearts for what those things would be and once again not doing them to be noticed by others as if to say "Look at me. Aren't I great" but to do them out of your love for living for Jesus.
When you are having a quiet time with the Lord pray and ask God to show you ways you could impact the world for Christ not to bring you glory but so you can point others to Him.
PRAYER: Each and every day is a gift from you. The money we have is actually yours. My time should be used for you too Lord. Help bring to mind those ways I can make a difference in the lives of others for your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
