During devotions this morning I read these two passages, which gave me a great picture of how I want to both live and die. I jotted these short prayers in my journal:
Acts 15:2-3 -- Paul & Barnabas are embroiled in sharp disagreement and dissension, but on their way to debate doctrine they are bringing joy everywhere they go. I want to live like this.
Genesis 50:24 -- "I am about to die, but God will..." With his last breath, Joseph is trusting in future grace. I want to die like this.
