What Are You Thinking About?

What do you spend your time thinking about? We live in a society filled with many fun distractions: television shows that are designed to keep us watching, movies, Facebook, blogging, books to read. There is always something to do, something we can choose to think about.

Lately, I have have been convicted about the little amount of time I actually spend thinking about the things of God. Often I am so preoccupied with reading a good book or keeping up with my favorite television show, that I don’t spend much time reading God’s Word or praying.

Paul reminds us in Romans 8:

5.For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6.For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,

According to these verses, I can find life and peace when I set my mind on the things of God instead of the fleshly distractions that are always around me. I pray that God will help me as I seek to keep His things in mind and to keep my mind in the right place.
