Morning Thoughts

Morning Inspiration – Be Watchful of the World

Eggs are boiling on the stove as I write this post. It is Sunday, my favorite day of the week. It sets the stage for a wonderful week when I gather with my church family to give praise to God for His blessings, His grace, His goodness. Last Sunday, the sermon was about what happens in the minute of our death. Many of us fear death, but if we have been saved, we have the assurance that we will leave our bodies and immediately be present in Jesus. This week’s sermon is about hell. Yes, hell is a real place. It is not fiction. Satan is real, too.

In my devotion today, I read how the enemy uses culture and our skewed sense of conformity to confuse us and draw us into the darkness. The lie is that we cannot offend anyone, so we have to embrace the new culture, even though it is considered sin in the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God. It is our life guide. It is so easy for Christians to become complacent and accepting because we have kind hearts and want to love everyone. It is how we are called to live. However, loving the person does not mean accepting the sin. It is so easy to get sucked into the ways of the world, degree by degree. Be watchful.

So, why did I start with my breakfast of boiled eggs? I’ve been on WW+ and working really hard on losing weight. Sundays my friend and I have lunch at a local pizza place. I know the individual veggie pizza I’ll order is a large number of my daily points. So I need to concentrate on zero point foods for my other meals. It’s a compromise. Lifting my cup of tea and reminding you that compromise is not something you do when confronted with sin. Be strong and be kind. Blessings to you and yours on this day the Lord has made.
