Verse and Prayer for 18th August

Reading   Romans 13:8-14

verse 14   “Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature,”

Our age is fascinated with psychology and mental well-being. There is, however, only one true psychology – the psychology of Jesus.  Psychology simply means ‘a study and understanding of the working of the soul.’  Who better to understand the souls than Jesus?  The teaching contained in the Beatitudes is the finest prescription for mental, emotional and spiritual health ever given.  God has so designed us that the right attitudes produce the right effects in our bodies.  It is helpful to keep in mind that they are ‘be attitudes’ and not ‘do attitudes.’  The doing comes out of the being.
Prayer    Gracious Father, I see You have made us such a way that the right things are good for us and bad things are bad for us. Amen.
