We are to try to make the world a better place by displaying the love of Christ wherever God has placed us.
When apostle Peter wrote to persecuted Christian believers in Asia Minor (modern Turkey), he advised them to keep their conduct honorable among the Gentiles, by doing good deeds that will ultimately bring glory to God.
We can make our world a better place through our actions.
Think of the difference that Christlike deeds of love, mercy, forgiveness, justice, and peace would make in our world.
Let us make the world we live a better place.
We cannot change the entire world singlehandedly, but by God's grace we can let the difference Christ has made in us make a difference in the world around us.
Let us let Christ shine through us.

Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! (Psalm 119:10)
Sometimes, even when our hearts long to seek God, the distraction of life can draw us away from Him and His Word.
Too often we find ourselves distracted and drifting, instead of having our hearts and minds focused on the Savior who loves us and gave Himself for us.
In those seasons of wandering, our heart of hearts doesn't want to drift from God.
But, like Paul, we often do what we don't want to do (Romans 7:19).
We desperately need to turn back to the Shepherd of our heart who can draw us to Himself.
How grateful we can be for a patient, compassionate heavenly Father whose grace is always sufficient, even when we are prone to wander!

We don't want to be disturbed. We don't want to be controlled.
We discover that we do need help and support.
As Christians, we have spiritual warfare to deal with.
We need spiritual weapons against evil spiritual forces.
We depend on the Word of God and the Spirit of God, if we were to win our spiritual battles.
We pray to the Lord, we hope in our God, and we glory in the Almighty.

The Church is the Body of Christ.
It is here that we are taught and brought near to God.
It is here that we help one another grow in Christlikeness.
Here we meet together as a corporate body to exhort and encourage one another.
The writer of Hebrews said, “Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works” (Hebrews 10:24).
As believers in Christ, we have the privilege and responsibility of encouraging one another in our faith.

The story of the rebellious prophet Jonah shows us how God desires to use both blessings and trials to challenge us and change us for the better.
5 times in the book of Jonah it says that the Lord prepared circumstances for him—both good and bad:
- The Lord sent a storm to prevent Jonah from fleeing. (1:4).
- The Lord prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah to save him from drowning (1:17).
- The Lord prepared a plant to shade Jonah (4:6).
- The Lord prepared a worm to chew the plant so that it withered (4:7).
- The Lord provided a scorching east wind, and the sun blazed on Jonah's head so that he grew faint and wanted to die.(4:8-9).
These circumstances revealed Jonah’s rebellious attitude.
Then God directly confronted Jonah’s heart problem.
God is sovereign over both the blessings and the troubles that come our way.
God uses both good and bad to transform us and guide us on our journey.
