Whether We Live or Die

I'm still working my way through Romans, and it's still marvelous. I plan to go back and share some thoughts on chapters 11-13, but before I do, I wanted to share some incredible verses from chapter 14. I love how verse eight encapsulates any and all situations. It's all for the Lord and we belong to Him!

Romans 14:8-9 (NIV)
If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. 9 For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.

I also wanted to include another favorite passage that I think compliments the Romans verses quite nicely. They provide a practical prayer for direction each day:

Psalm 143:8 (NIV)
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.
