Bible verse of the day. 2 Chronicles 19:6

Always think carefully before pronouncing judgment. Remember that you do not judge to please people but to please the Lord. 2 Chronicles 19:6 

This verse can seem very strange, since people aren't supposed to judge each other, but in the context of this verse, a king is talking to judges he just appointed. Oh, now it makes sense: Judges have the job of judging, so they can judge.

But then you start to think of this verse in the context of every occupation. Wouldn't it be so much better if you thought of your job as pleasing to God? I think that, as Mary Kay Ash said, you need to put God first, family second, and career third, and then everything will work itself out.

All of us need to make sure that our work is in the name of the Lord. Then everything else will work itself out.

Keep it Classy. Keep it Country.

P.S. I made a new year's resolution to read the entire bible cover to cover this year. So I realize for a while, most of these bible verses are going to come from the Old Testament. I'm reading the bible slowly, to take it all in, so just bear with me through this.
