Saint John Damascene used his talents and the knowledge that he received from his classical and theological education to assist him in his ministry. Do you use the blessings that God has given you to help you do his work and minister to others? Ask the Lord to guide your work and ministry each day so you can become a better Christian.
Dear God, I praise and thank you for the grace you give to help me find my way to you. Please guide my footsteps every day so that I become righteous, godly, faithful, loving, patient, and gentle. (Taken from “Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
