PRAYER: Please pray for Cathy. She’s homeless and having a rough go of it.

DEVOTION: “I am writing these things to warn you about those who want to lead you astray.” – ‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:26

Those who want to lead us astray. That number is huge. We encounter things that want to lead us astray daily. Sometimes hourly.

Content on the internet, TV, books, audio. The list goes on and on. So many things that distract us and pull us away from God in our lives.

It’s a daily battle to manage our time and give God a portion of it each day. Take the time each day to dig into His word and into His plan for our lives.

Yes, binge watching is fun. It’s a great way to unplug, but we’re not believers who take our salvation and forget it. We need to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. We need to constantly work on our relationship and our conversation with God. Constantly learn. Constantly strive to do more and serve more. Give more.

God, today, we reach for you. Reach up and reach out to grasp the hope that you have for us. Grasp the love that you have for us. Help us to never take it for granted. Never forget the sacrifices made and to always take time each day to fall deeper and deeper in love with you, our Father, our God.

    As I read this, I can hear the song lyric, “They will know we are Christians, by our love.” When you are lead by the Holy Spirit, you show a true love and concern about your fellow man. As a follower of Jesus, people should see your light, and your caring and compassionate lifestyle.
