Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.  – Romans 8:8

DON'T GET STUCK

This portion of Scripture is fairly straight forward.  In order to honor God, we have to embrace His Word and His Way of living.  God’s Holy Word – every bit of it.

I was reading about how important it is to have proper lighting surround you when you are chatting on Skype.  It’s not a simple fix, but you can look lovely if you put forth some effort, they say.  The article went on to explain that if you position your light directly behind your gadget’s camera and place a sheet of white paper on the table, directly below your chin (which will bounce a soft glow onto your face) – then you will look really good!

How much effort are we willing to make to look good for our Heavenly Father?  Do we care if He is pleased?  Does it matter if He sees us in a flattering light?  Will we put more effort into looking good on Skype than we do in being godly?

Is anyone else saying OUCH… ???

We do tend to spend a lot of time on the external, don’t we?  If Christians (I’m pointing to myself too) would spend half the time working on the internal, how great would that be?  That’s why daily devotionals and Bible study classes are so important.  We need to have that head knowledge of God’s Word to make us wise.  We need to have that heart knowledge of God’s Word to make us strong.

Let’s have the proper lighting on board as we walk in God’s Way…  God Himself.  Before you step out into the world today, don’t forget to pray.  Ask the Lord to light your way and point you in the right direction.  Ask Him to keep you safe from harm and hold you closely.  He will honor that heart-felt prayer and protect you along life’s way.  Why?  Because He loves you, silly!  🙂
