Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Psalm 119:160
- Today’s devotional

The following devotional by Phil Ware, www.crosswalk.com touches right at the center of Christian life. We are called to live holy lives in a fallen world. We know we cannot do it perfectly, but nevertheless we are called to do it, by God’s grace, to the best of our abilities. Vegetarianism is part of living a moral life by respecting the God-given rights of nonhuman animals. By extending compassion, mercy and justice beyond humanity we are applying Jesus’ teachings meal by meal.

Psalm 119:160: "All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal."

Thoughts on today's verse: The requirements of morality and holiness are not temporary or fleeting because they reflect the nature of our Holy God who is eternal. They don't shift with the wishes of culture, but are true across cultures and times and wishes.

Prayer: Righteous God Almighty, may my life reflect your character and nature in compassion, holiness, and justice. I know you are forever, and I want to invest my life in what lasts. Give me wisdom to see through the fleeting temptations of today and do what honors you beyond my lifetime. In Jesus name. Amen.
