Proverbs 16:31 says “Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained by living a godly life.”
This verse should make all of us with gray hair feel better…”gray hair is a crown of glory.”
But the verse continues, “it is Gained by living a godly life.”
What does it mean to live a Godly life? It means to live for Christ. It means to worship the Lord and study His word and apply His word in our lives.
It means to live lives of integrity. The world is filled with people who lie or can’t be counted on. Christians should be people who are trustworthy…not gossips or slanderers…
It means to be a person who is filled with grace. We have a tendency at times, to think living a Godly life means being judgmental. Living for Christ is opposite of that. Jesus was filled with grace. We should be as well.
Living a Godly life means being a giver. It means tithing and giving to help others as the Lord leads.
It means watching our mouths. Simply put; Christians should be different. We are to live Holy lives. The word “Holy” means “separate.” Our lives are to be marked by godliness and grace.
Today, I encourage you to join me in living a Godly life.
