I am abstinent today by the grace of God.

Wisdom calls out, in Proverbs 8:17 (NIV),”I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.”

It occurred to me, while I was offering myself to God this morning that, while there is no way to pay God back for all He has done for me, He does ask this one thing: that I remember that He, my Maker, also made the people I will contact, and it would be appreciated if I treated them accordingly.
