Dan Ledford on God's holiness.

He has a list of ways for us to grow in our holiness, too. Here's how it ends:

When the Ledford family goes somewhere our girls will often – in excitement (or distraction) – get ahead of us. And we’ll say, “Who’s your leader?” And they’ll say, “Mom & Dad!” And we’ll say, “It doesn’t look like it.”

“Dan, who’s your leader?”

“Jesus is.”

“It doesn’t look like it – you’re not following him; you keep trying to go on ahead of him.”

Verse 4 – “Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul [Be still and know that I am God]/Each thought and each motive beneath his control/Thus led by his Spirit to fountains of love/Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.”

May you take time to be holy by taking time to be with the Lord.

Read the whole thing.
