The Kitchen Table Devotions

When you step out the door this morning, know where you’re going and why. If we don’t know why we’re leaving, we probably don’t know who we’re serving. The younger son was leaving the one who loved him most. Emotions run high when expectations run low. One way to know we’re leaving out of sorts is that we want to live out of sight. Walking out the door with guilt and greed is a bad way to start a journey in life. Find your why before you get the where and what you don’t want to see. Love doesn’t always light up the room, but it won’t leave you in the dark. Never forget your Father loves you and leaves you with a why, a where and a what you won’t regret.
