April 09 of Arise with Christ

Examine your life daily

Oh Lord!
Grant me the wisdom to know the difference between good thoughts and evil thoughts.
Teach me, oh Lord, to examine my own heart and motives with at least the same degree of scrutiny as I examine the actions of others.
A man who does not examine, constantly, his own life is leaving the door wide open for the evil one to take over and ruin his life.
A life lived without diligent self examination is not worth living.
Good seeds, good thoughts, never bear evil fruits.
Evil seeds, evil thoughts, always bear evil fruits.
Good seeds bear the good fruit of love, joy, peace, patience and faith.
Bad seeds bear the evil fruits of hatred, anger, strife and doubt.
Live the good life and live.
