How to be a decent human being

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him… These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. 2 Pet. 1:4-5a

Trying to be a decent human being is frustrating. Our default setting is selfishness and it’s embedded deep in human nature. Goodness comes from God. He offers to reset our selfish natures to reflect  His own good nature. How we respond to that offer can change how we respond to everything else.

Lord, help my responses reflect Your nature today.
