So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech.1 Peter 2:1
Get Rid of Evil Behavior
It seems like such a simple task, right? “Get rid of all evil behavior.” It is never that easy, is it? Sure maybe the “big” behaviors seem easier than others. But it is the little behaviors that are harder, maybe even the ones that no one sees that only God knows. The jealous thoughts over someone else’s promotions. The unkind thoughts about those who wrong us. The hypocritical words and actions contradicting our faith. All of these things block our view of who God is.
It starts with a thought. If you spend time in prayer and soaking in God’s Word, you will change your behavior and see God do great things in your life.
A Prayer to Remember
Change my thinking and my behavior. May my thoughts, words, and actions be pleasing to you. Amen.
