When you were in school, you always wanted to have a good grade record. High scores on your exams were what you wanted to achieve. However, a good school record does not reveal who you are.
I have My own way to keep score as you go through life. I look at the attitude of your heart. You do not score high in My kingdom when you produce good works without depending upon Me,
Good deeds are important, but I do not keep a record of your good deeds. I long to have an intimate relationship with you that produces a fruitful life in My Kingdom. I am the One who works through you both to give you the will and the ability to accomplish all the good works I have designed for you. It always delights Me when you are willing to stay connected to Me moment by moment through your communication with Me and your reading and heeding My Word. Total dependence upon Me and the power of My Spirit is what I consider a high score as you labor in My Kingdom.
