Thought for the day

I believe there is a vast difference between a moral person and a godly person. Oswald Chambers says when a moral person is confronted with immorality, he closes his heart to the offender. I would add that when a godly person encounters immorality, he is repulsed by the offense but he maintains love and acceptance toward the offender.

May we always remember the difference between the offense and the offender. Christ demonstrates his love for us, in that while we were still sinners, he died for us. (Rm. 5:8) May we strive to be godly, not simply moral!
