Joel Osteen (May-14-2022) Daily Devotional: Mind Your Own Business
Today’s Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 4:11, TLB - This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and doing your own work, just as we told you before.
Today’s Word: In Numbers 12, Moses' sister, Miriam, and his brother, Aaron, began to criticize him and question his leadership. Perhaps Miriam felt Moses was getting some of the recognition she deserved. She focused her criticism on the fact that many years before, Moses had married a Cushite woman, a foreigner. It was none of her business who he had married, and because of it, her skin suddenly became leprous. That may seem extreme, but that is how much God dislikes it when we sow discord and stir up trouble. Fortunately for Miriam, Moses prayed for her, and God restored her skin to health.
The apostle Paul says to mind your own business. It is not our business who others marry, what car they drive, or how they spend their money. Don't be a busybody, don't be nosey, trying to know everything. Some things we shouldn't have an opinion about, or if we do, we should keep it to ourselves unless they ask. It's hard enough to run our own life. Don't try to run somebody else's.
Prayer for Today: Father, thank You for all the people You have placed in my life. Thank You that You want me to love them like You do, to support them in every way that I can. Help me to mind my own business and live my life in a way that pleases You in all I do and say. In Jesus' Name, Amen

Joel Osteen (October-17-2021) Daily Devotion: Are You in the Business of Blessing?
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. James 3:10, NIV
TODAY'S WORD: The Scripture encourages us to use our words to bless people. "To bless" means to speak well of, to pronounce favor, and to declare good things. People in your life need to receive your blessing, especially your spouse and children. Are you giving your children the blessings of love, affection and encouragement? Are you speaking words that build them up and bless their future?
You may not have received this approval from your own parents. Perhaps there wasn't a lot of love in your home. Perhaps your mom or dad always talked down to you. Let us challenge you to be the one to break the stronghold over your family. Decide today that you are going to stop talking down to others. Choose instead to encourage others. Stop focusing on what others are doing wrong and start thanking them for what they are doing right. Begin right now to bless others' futures. Your decision to be a positive influence will have a greater impact on your family than you could ever imagine. It will affect generations to come. Speak these blessings over your family, your children, and those whom you love and care for. If you will bless others, God will certainly bless your own life beyond what you ever hoped or dreamed.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: God, I want to use my words to bless, encourage, and lift others up. Help me to start today, in my own home, to purposefully use what I say to bless my friends and family. Give me uplifting words to say and the discipline to keep negative criticisms to myself. In Jesus' name - Amen
