Planting Seeds of Righteousness
Righteousness is more than a religious word. You have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, and there is a great reward for those who walk uprightly in their day-to-day living. Righteousness means doing things God’s way; being a doer of the Word and not a hearer only. No man can tame the tongue, but you can take every thought captive so that you speak the right things. Words begin with a thought, and when you think God thoughts, you will speak and act like God. He who sows righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) shall have a sure reward [permanent and satisfying]. (Proverbs 11:18b) If you want to harvest righteousness in your life tomorrow, you must plant seeds of righteousness today. (Henry & Richard Blackaby, Experiencing God Day by Day)

Holy Spirit, help me plant the good seeds of righteousness. I expect to reap a crop of peace and love. I plow up the hard ground of my heart for now is the time to seek the Lord. Test me, O Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth. I am a peacemaker planting seeds of peace and I will reap a harvest of goodness in the name of Jesus. Amen
