Daily Word Of God
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Watch yourselves, or your hearts will be coarsened by debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of life, and that day will sprung on you suddenly, like a trap. For it will come down on every living man on the face of the earth.
‘Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man.’

- Temptations and sins seep into our hearts silently and subtly. Thus, Jesus wants us to pray fervently and be discerningly at all times.

- Are we sincere in living our lives for God and His ways? If we are, then there will always be deep peace and fulfillment in our lives regardless of what happens. What is the Lord saying to us about your present life?
