Proverbs 21:21 Daily Devotional
Many things try to steal our focus away. The primary thing the author is saying we need to be looking for is righteousness and love. When we do that, we find only good things. This is consistent with Jesus’ teaching that love and justice should inform everything we do.
Pursue righteousness and love by serving others and standing up for the oppressed. These are basic commands from Christ himself, so it wouldn’t be wise to ignore them. Always ask yourself what love requires of you, and then do that thing.
Help me to focus on you and the goodness you have for my life. I want to stand up for your causes and defend those who can’t defend themselves. Give me the courage to pursue love and righteousness in everything I do. It’s in Jesus’ name, amen.
