Do you need Encouragement for Today?

Over the past few days I’ve had the privilege of reading and sending out the Encouragement for Today devotional emails from Proverbs 31 Ministries. I’ve been impressed by both the quality of the writing and the humble honesty each of the writers brings to the devotional.

Just this week we’ve read Biblically-grounded reflections on life from Glynnis Whitwer, Mary Beth Whalen, Melissa Taylor and Lysa TerKeurst—and next week promises another lineup of excellent writers.

Let me share with you an excerpt from today’s devotional, written by Lysa TerKeurst—who you might know as the author of the best-selling Made to Crave. The following is a passage that I found particularly challenging:

We aren’t called to live according to the norm, doing what comes naturally.

We are called to rise above. Be set apart. Be different. Be pure in every way. “Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure” (1 John 3:3).

What blessing do you have that might need to be shared today? What blessing do I have that might need to be shared today?

Right in the midst of what we’re doing today, how can we graciously and purely represent Christ as we RE-present Him everywhere we go?
