Galatians 5:18-25; Luke 11:42-46
And he said, “Woe also to you scholars of the law! You impose on people burdens hard to carry, but you yourselves do not lift one finger to touch them. – Lk 11:46
Do I always reflect the values of Jesus to others?
Lord, sometimes I expect others to be perfect when I am not so perfect myself. Help me to take a better inventory of my own values.

Eph 1:1-10; Luke 11:47-54
Woe to you, scholars of the law! You have taken away the key of knowledge. You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter. – Lk 11:52
What are some ways that I can share God with others?
Lord, you commanded us to teach others. Grant me the courage to set aside any personal feelings and take your word to the world. Do not allow me to withhold the knowledge you have given me, but to share it with others.

Eph 1:11-14; Lk 12:1-7
There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. – Lk 12:2
Jesus tells us that all secret things will be revealed. What secrets do I have that need to be healed?
Lord, I am not a perfect person. I have sinned against you – often. Help me to live a better life so that when my secrets are revealed I will not be so ashamed. Grant me the strength to change my way of living.
