Happy Wednesday Saints.

1Timothy 4:16 “WATCH YOUR LIFE AND DOCTRINE CLOSELY.”

Yesterday, we looked at not worrying about what others are doing, but rather, focus on what YOU need to do.

Have you been keeping a close eye on your own life? The Christain Standard Bible says “PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR LIFE.”

Some people know more about what’s happening in other people’s lives than their own. While they follow others on social media, their own lives are slowly deteriorating. They are more aware of what the Kardashians are up to than of what’s happening inside their own hearts.

If we’re not careful, social media can distract us from our own reality. It can divert our focus away from things that require our attention.

Ephesians 5:15 says to “BE VERY CAREFUL THEN HOW YOU LIVE, NOT AS UNWISE BUT AS WISE.”

Are you fully aware of how you’re living your life? Are you living on purpose, with God’s will in mind? Are you making each day count, or are you watching time pass you by?

Social media may allow you to escape reality but it won’t prevent you from experiencing the results of it.

What’s happening in your own life? What have you been learning from the Bible? What has God been saying to you lately? Is there anything that you’ve been avoiding? Have you been procrastinating about something that requires some immediate action? What do you need to stop doing? What do you need to get started on?

Fulfilling the will of God for your life won’t happen by coincidence or luck. Pay attention to how you’re living and be deliberate about what you’re doing for the Lord.

Have a great day. God bless and lots’a love,
Warren
