eSeed: We've Got To Get Some Of It

Read Psalm 90:17

A mama skunk and her baby skunks came to a paper mill. If you’ve been close to one, you’ll get the drift of it quickly.

One of the baby skunks was almost overcome with the odor. “Mom,” she cried, “what’s that?”

Sniffing deeply, she answered, “I don’t know, but we’ve got to get some of it.”

As believers in the Lord, we need to live a beautiful and beneficial life, a gracious and godly life, a happy and helpful life, a winsome and worthwhile life so that others will say, “I don’t know what that believer has, but whatever it is, I’ve got to get some of it.”

Let’s pray with the psalmist, “Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us.”

Prayer: Give us, dear Father, love for our lips, mercy for our mouths, truth for our tongues, and Thy loveliness for our lives. Let Thy beauty be upon us, Father, that we may live beautiful lives for Thee: through Christ. Amen.
