Scripture Reference: “Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit of it; so he who patiently and faithfully guards and heeds his master, shall be honoured” – Proverbs 27:18 AMP
I was amazed at Joseph’s attitude towards the coming of his great family to Egypt. Genesis 46:31 is an example of accountability. He asked Pharaoh before taking a step. He never took his privileged position for granted. I wish Christians would understand this. Do you know accountability in your relationship with your spouse and pastor could keep a man or woman from adultery and sexual immorality. Undue independence is not freedom; it is weakness in disguise.
Identify your master(s) today. Honour them by being accountable and your honour will never end. Doing your thing your own way is slavery. You can’t stand by yourself. You need a mentor; you need counsel. Talk to somebody today.
Daily digest: Don’t forget the words of Mike Murdock, “Your mentor is the person whose advice you follow”.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you that you never left me alone. Give me a sensitive heart to recognize the mentors in my life. I receive grace to heed the instructions you give me through them, in Jesus’ precious name, Amen. Thank you Lord.
