For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. (Titus 1:7-9 ESV)
Lord forgive me for not being “hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.” Holy Spirit! Help me to produce these fruits in my life! Help me to be honorable once again. Business has been my idol and of has cause my Spirit to become dry! Lord I repent and surrender so I can be more effective in the battle! Be glorified in my life today! In Jesus Name, Amen.
One of the Cretans, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” (Titus 1:12 ESV)
