While the girls and I were running errands the other day, the subject of cussing came up. After we all talked about how bad it was, my six-year-old chimed in. “I don’t cuss,” she declared. “I’m God-friendly!”

Of course, I laughed at first. Then, I processed her choice of words and realized how perfect they were. These days, I’m so consumed with finding books, movies, and even clothes that are “kid friendly” (sadly, it’s getting harder to do!). How much effort do I put into setting those standards for myself? I’m ashamed to admit that many times my thoughts and actions aren’t very “God-friendly” at all.

Lord, help me to pay better attention to my own action ratings. Help me be a ten in the area of God friendliness.
