I Peter 2:20, 21 (Pt. 2) - Pressed into the Sand.

  Thought/Prayer:  Topics:  2 at end.

“For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:  For to this have ye been called; for Christ also has suffered for you, leaving you a model that ye should follow in his steps: . . .”  KJV http://www.bible.com/  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

What kind of model will we be for those coming behind us?  What kind of pathway of our foot prints will be etched in the damp “sands of life” for those who follow? 

If we are following in our Lord’s footsteps, our footprints will be always headed in the right direction.  Can we expect those who come after us to always step just where we did, to not deepen our prints or expand their shape or borders?  No!  That’s not the way it works.  They will make their own footprints on ours – according to the calling God gives them.
But, if we do not point in the right direction (up and forward), they will not have the right basis upon which to imprint their paths. 

Lord, as we who covet LIFE for all, help us to always be mindful of where our steps take us, and let them be clear and impressed fully into the blank sands.  Let those who come later, be able to clearly see Your direction as they make their way in You.

All unborn babies in the womb – that all those around then will see the value of their forming lives.
