Are you being vigilant?


For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Romans 14:17

What we put in our bodies is certainly important—after all, our bodies are the temples of God’s Spirit. Yet, we know that being obedient and pleasing to God requires more than just watching what we eat and drink, or watch and hear. We must also remain diligent about our minds and hearts, the thoughts and feelings that rise up in us and how we respond to them, especially with our actions.

With so much information clamoring for our attention, with so many pop-ups, ads, and seductive sales pitches aimed at us, we’re constantly taking in more than we realize. More images, more ideas, more sensations—and yes, often more temptations—than we realize.

As our world becomes even more digitalized and media-saturated, you must take responsibility for what you see, hear, think, and feel. Don’t let your default setting be one without filters. Seek to please God by all you allow into your mind, heart, and soul.

Pray: “Lord, allow me to remain vigilant about what I allow into my mind. I want to please you in all that I think, do, and say.”
