Self-control (or lack thereof) always reveals our priorities.
Lately, I’ve realized that my priorities don’t always match God’s. Let’s pray that we would prioritize the things God cares about.
I believe that as we understand God’s goodness and our sinfulness more, our worship will move beyond just something we do, to a deeply ingrained part of our lives.
Technology is not a thermostat but a thermometer that can tell us a great deal about ourselves that we might not recognize as readily any other way.
During difficulties, God isn’t as concerned with our circumstances as he is about our identities. If we, in the midst of unemployment or a break-up or depression or pain, can see ourselves as we truly are, beloved children of God, it will change how we live.
If you’ve wandered at all, I encourage you to turn around today.
How we treat others reveals the state of our hearts.
I don’t know the character or faith of Zipporah but I do know this: she was able to clearly identify what was important to God and she acted upon it when it mattered the most! I hope and pray that I am able to do the same.
What’s your ranking system that determines what’s more important than the other things going on in your life?
Whether you’re going through a time of sunshine or fog, invite God into this season.
