We’re finishing up our final section in Thirty Days of Devotion and discussing priorities for the last time.
Today’s article still focuses on keeping our priorities in line with Christ. In particular, having the same attitude as He when He became obedient to death.
Despite the claims that so many health and wealth evangelists make about how God wants us to be happy, He’s not constrained to the itty-bitty-living-space of a lamp.
He wants us to have joy whatever comes our way. And scripture bears out that we will have trouble. So strike that un-biblical sermon. He’s also not all that concerned with our financial statements or wellness scores, except when it comes to what He has planned for us.
He is more concerned with the folks across the street from you who might not know Him. He’s not nearly as concerned with the physical health as He is with the spiritual health of a friend or neighbor.
So as we set priorities and struggle to follow and finish well, our concern has to be lifted heavenward, not on ourselves, our reputations, or the size of our house or make of our car.
Someone’s eternity might very well depend upon our attention to God’s details.
Your turn: Do you have someone on your heart that needs to see Christ in our actions, your attitude, or your forgiveness? What’s stopping you?
Only 2 days left in our Thirty Days of Blessing. Wow. This was a mountain when I started it. I can see how my daily walk with Christ has become more meaningful. I hope you have benefited as well! See you back here tomorrow with “Empty?”
Until then, I hope this song encourages you. It sure helps me when I fail to do what I talked about above!
