On Your Best BehaviorAudio / Produced by The High Calling
When Sherry was little, as she'd leave home, her parents would say, "Be on your best behavior!" Sherry knew what that meant: show good manners, be kind, share what you have . . . don't embarrass the family!
Our Heavenly Father also sends us out with instructions. Love God and your neighbor. Treat people as you want them to treat you. Accept difficulties with joy. When the going gets tough, trust God. And while our parents may have been thinking about our outward behavior, God is concerned with our hearts.
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Who said life doesn't come with instructions? It's just that God's instructions tell us not what to do, but who to BE . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
