2 Chronicles 21:20  Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. No one was sorry when he died. They buried him in the City of David, but not in the royal cemetery. (NLT)

Every story has a backstory. Every leader has a formative past. Jehoram became king because he was the oldest son of the deceased king. He did just about everything wrong a king could do. He reigned eight years, died of horrendous disease, and no one was sorry when he was gone. Don’t be that guy.

No matter who you are, no matter your status, no matter your responsibilities and opportunities, you can leave the world better than you found it. Enrich the lives of others with positive, focused attention. Live generously. Extravagantly encourage others. Profusely sing other people’s praises. Speak the truth in love. 

Give more than you receive. Rebuild broken lives. Restore those who are worn out. Rethink ideas that keep people in bondage. Reflect God’s mercy and grace. Refresh others with the peace of his presence. 

Today is an opportunity to practice positive impact. Make up your mind to be the best encounter everyone who sees you today has all day long. Serve with a smile. Laugh easily. Sing happy songs. Live as if you know the secret to the universe and bear the key opening all of glory to anyone who desires the best there can be. 

Turn Galatians 2:20 into reality. Make Colossians 2:27 come alive. Express the beauty of Philippians 1:21. 

Don’t merely tell stories; live them. Turn tragedies into triumphs. Lead others to the place where every ending is happy. Lead them to Jesus.

I will practice positive impact.

Our Father, saturate our lives with your grace, mercy, and peace. May your love overflow into the lives of everyone we meet today. May your hand of healing and restoration touch broken lives. Use us in whatever manner you see fit to beautify your world. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
