I am a sojourner on the earth; hide not Your commandments from me!
Lord, how often I forget, "This world in not my home, I'm just a passing through." I forget that my residency here is one of an ambassador to a foreign land, carrying the responsibility of representing my King to that land, working to serve the interests of my King. I am not called to advance the kingdom in which I reside or to serve its interests. I serve You and You alone; Your commandments are my letters of instruction and authority. You are my King.
