Would You Look at That! ~ September 9

Would You Look at That!

I highly recommend it!!

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Philippians 4:5

We should be an example to those around us, but. I don’t believe it’s necessary to diligently watch everything we say and do in order to set a good example. Our diligence should be in focusing on God and His word, allowing Him to be the guiding light within us others will see and follow.

“The Lord is near,” doesn’t mean we better be good because He’s near and watching our every move. When we invite the Lord into our hearts and lives, it is then He is always near—within us, actually—and we will live in a way that glorifies Him.

It’s all a matter of what we focus on. If we focus on something it becomes your guide and ultimately our purpose. This goes for all things, good or bad. If we focus on the bad things in our lives, they will begin to be all we see, and will control our thoughts and actions; they become all to us and consume us. On the other hand, if we concentrate on God and all things good, then the good things will become the essence of our heart and soul, and we will exude the love and gentleness of God.

Make God the center of your life; concentrate on Him; you’ll love what happens when you do!
