January 15 - Job 35:8

Your wickedness affects others like you,
and your righteousness, other human beings.
Job 35:8
When people sin, a common excuse is, "I'm not hurting anybody but me."
As the Apostle Paul says, "None of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself ..." (Rom 14:7).
How many of us have seen the behavior of one person pull down the character of others? The same can happen with the generosity of spirit. Faith, hope, love, righteousness, and heroism can absolutely inspire others.
In both cases we can be like the tide, lifting up or pulling down others as our behavior rises or falls.
In Christ's Love,
a beach bum
who's praying for
high tide
