You do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? - James 4:14 (NIV)
During my training as a teacher, I had to implement a reward program in a classroom. Students earned tokens for good behavior and excellent work. These were traded on selected days for small prizes and privileges. My students quickly became obsessed with the rewards.
But I struggled as I watched...
I do not have to earn God’s favor.

Respond by posting a prayer.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
