Scripture for the day is Matthew 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, once I tried to serve you only out of duty. Later I lived to serve myself. Both were paths filled with thorns. Only now, in small ways, am I experienced the unique motivation of serving you out of love and gratitude for a free salvation. It is an energy that does not exhaust me. Grow it in my heart! Amen.
