Lazaroo – Thursday, October 6, 2011

Oct 06, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with undiluted sincerity:

“…the appeal we make does not spring from…impure motives…”
(1 Thessalonians 2:3)

Most of the time I think that’s true of me, Jesus.

When I try to get somebody to do something
I’m trying to do the right thing.

Usually I believe it’s the right thing for them.

But sometimes I also believe it’s the right thing for me.

That’s when it gets a little harder to sort out.

I don’t want to be that person
who manipulates people for my own benefit.

I want to be a person who puts others ahead of myself
who persuades others to do what’s right

even if it doesn’t help me
even if it hurts me.

Because here’s what I believe about You:

If I take care of others
You’ll take care of me

even if it doesn’t look that way at first.

even if I have to wait

till heaven.
