Titus 2:7-8 (NIV)
In everything, set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
As true Christians, we represent everything to do with Christ’s character. It is absolutely important that we show excellence in everything we lay our hands on. Whether we work for someone or we work for ourselves, we have to show integrity in all we do, be gentle in our speech so we can reflect God’s nature and draw all men to Christ. God will play his part but we have to prepare ourselves for the blessings God is bringing our way. There’ll always be opposition but with truth and diligence, you will prevail. Imperfections will reveal our opportunities. Stand firm.
Help us O Lord, to comfort ourselves in all situations, knowing when to speak and when to be silent. We seek your spirit to lead and guide us in our ways so we can be blameless before men. In Jesus’ name I pray.
