Day Seven – Be at peace

Today’s scripture: Mark 9:50

At the end of the day Jesus gave an exhortation for the disciples to (1) have salt in themselves, and (2) be at peace with each other. They certainly hadn’t been much of a peaceful bunch throughout the day. And salt was seriously lacking, not just where they traveled, but even among themselves. If credibility is missing inside the house, it certainly won’t be found outside the house.

I wonder how much time I’ve wasted because a bad mood affected my attitude and influenced others in a negative way. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could go back and redo our mistakes? Obviously, that’s not possible. But, today is a new day with a fresh start. We can move on in credibility. You are the salt of the earth. Make someone thirsty.

Remember—credibility begins at home.

  • Once we lose credibility, can we gain it? How?
  • How will your relationship with the Lord be different after this week’s quest?
