Oct. 9

O LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes; Make Your way straight before me.
Psalm 5:8

Now to look at it from the dictionary side:
O God; Jehovah go before or with to show me the state of being morally right or justifiable because of my enemy; Make your way honest, honorable, or upright, before me.

We know that there is always soembody out there that doesn't like us, or even so we just may not like them in the way they treat us. We must remember that God has a plan for us in how we are to deal with them. Our human nature wants us to be mean or unkind, but it is God who is calling us to do the right thing and love them and show them mercy. Is it easy? No, but when we let God lead us, then we will do the right thing. When we take matters into our own hands we act as man does, we can be cruel and unkind. We must remember that these are not characteristics of God and when we reflect anything that us ungodly, then people are not going to see God in us.
Strive to be an example, and when we walk with God, we will be a godly example. Remember that when you kick a bucket something will come out. What is going to come out of you when you are kicked? Will it be the dirty "water" that is stored up in you or will it be clean "water" that will be a refelction of Christ?
