Morning Inspiration

September 20:

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

(Colossians 3:17) ✝️

“When we sacrifice to anything, we are ‘connecting’ ourselves to a person or thing; we are establishing a kind of communion with them. Communion with Christ is exclusive. We can’t be connected to anything else at the same time. Whenever we invest an inordinate amount of our time, energy, or resources in pursing things other than God, we are in effect sacrificing to them. Whether it be the pursuit of a career, material things, or a favorite pastime, don’t let it become a driving force in our lives. We want to invest in ourselves and keep close to Christ. Nothing can give us what only God stands ready to give.”

Good morning. 😀
