Crisis presents great opportunities to change things for the better. Our present National crisis with the terrorist attacks and the looming war with world terrorist’s organizations is a good example of this. We have already heard about better relations between races, Hollywood committed to provide more patriotic wholesome movies, little children saving money for families of firefighters instead of themselves, high government officials praying to God to bless America instead of political parties and much more. Crises are great opportunities to change things for the better.

We can apply this truth to our own personal lives. Our present peril is an opportunity right now to: Begin treating all people with more kindness. Make it a habit to tell people you love them while they are still here. Commit to faithfulness in church attendance, Bible study and prayer. Move toward a less materialistic lifestyle. Seek a closer, more intimate relationship with God. Become a true disciple of Jesus Christ. Take up my cross, deny myself and follow Jesus.

Dear Father, please transform me into the image of Jesus.
