Day 5: A Prayer to do Good

"Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good."
-3 John, verse 11.

Jesus,

Help me to remember my Belovedness today.  Let my rest in your eternal, unconditional delight in me cause me to do good.  It's so easy for me to look to the world and see how I don't measure up.  Then I am tempted to do evil: to look for unconditional love outside of You, to look to others for approval, to find my worth in what I do rather than who I am.  But you remind me that I am loved.  Secure in that love, I can do good, no matter what is happening around me.  Help me to imitate good from that peaceful place.

Amen.
