Do you hear about people who are very successful in doing all of the right things and then they blow it?
Such sad stories!
They had it all together at one point…but then they lost it.
I think one of the saddest stories in the Old Testament is how King Solomon let himself be negatively influenced by the foreign wives he let into his life and they led his away from his One True God. The wisest man who ever lived started worshipping made-up, detestable, wooden gods.
A pitiful ending to a life that started out so well.
Do any of us want our lives to end up that way? I don’t think so. I know I don’t – I want to end well.
So I’m making a plan to ensure that my life stays on track with God. I’m going to make sure I don’t get lazy about my spiritual habits of reading and memorizing Gods Word, talking with him, and building relationships with my spiritual family. I’m going to be careful about the people I let into my life who influence me. And I’m going to quickly turn back to God if I see myself wandering down a path that doesn’t bring me closer to him.
What’s your plan?
Please keep us close to you, Abba Father.
