9-13 lifelines — search me

Posted

 ‘Search me, O God’

   Recently I’ve been receiving surveys requesting information about my interests, activities and desires. If I take the survey, they are rejected most of the time for reasons of demographics or area of interest. 

    So I thought, I’ll do a different kind of survey, but answers will not be given to a sponsor or business --only God will know what’s in your heart. But the survey may be revealing to you in many ways in “walking the walk” and “talking the talk.” Here are the 20 questions:

   What do you plan to do during the next service time at your church?

   How often to you call or visit that shut-in you know?

   How often do you give in offering (large or small) at your church?

   When was the last time you fed the hungry?

   When was the last time you gave a hug to someone who was discouraged?

   How often do you spend time with God?

   Are your prayers for others or for yourself alone?

   Which nursing home did you visit last?

   When did you forgive someone for a hurt?

   When was the last time you smiled at a stranger?

   When was the last time you complimented a cashier or a server?

   How much of God’s Word to you normally read each day?

   Do you teach your children (or grandchildren) about God?

   Do you expect a reward for "doing good?"

   Does your conversation glorify Christ?

   Which is more important – your pleasure or delighting in the Lord?

   Are you honest in all your dealings?

   Do you judge people?

   What is the most important goal in your life?

   Does your life show the “fruit of the Spirit?”

   Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
