Isaiah 66:2
“But there is something I’m looking for:
a person simple and plain,
reverently responsive to what I say.”
(The Message)

It’s Monday. Again. Mondays often feel like letdowns after the self-determined activities of the weekend. How can we add a bit of energy and anticipation to Mondays? We can realize God is looking for people just like us. He wants to enrich the lives of those who are “simple and plain, reverently responsive” to him.

Ostentatious pretension is not what God enjoys in a person. He prefers when we live and worship simply, plainly, and reverently responsive to his guidance. 

Let the workweek begin with the satisfaction of knowing we don’t have to impress God with acts of derring-do. Instead, we can seek his heart and mind in our daily Bible reading. We can live what we say we believe. We can become salt and light wherever we go. We can listen for his voice as he guides our steps, our thoughts, and our simple service in his name.

If you need a motto to get through Monday and on into this week, Reverently Responsive is a pretty good choice. It reminds us of what God is looking for in people like us. It directs us toward productive and helpful service. It teaches us to keep life simple and straightforward. 

This could be the best Monday ever, or at least in a long time. 

I will live a Reverently Responsive life.

Our Father, empower us to live simple and plain, reverently responsive lives. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
