The Truth For Today – February 8

February 8th

Interested in the glory of God

You can’t stand the bad guys.

Revelation 2: 2

We must be so interested in the glory of God that we suffer when he is not honored. That was undoubtedly David’s attitude when he said, “For the zeal of your house consumed me, and the insults of those who reproached you fell on me” (Ps. 69: 9). David suffered deeply when God was not honored.

As a parent, I understand what David was saying. If someone hurts one of my children, they hurt me. I have often wept for someone I love and whose heart was broken. When you identify with God in this way, your honor will interest you far more than you do.
