Matthew 16:26

"For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?"

It's so easy to get distracted by the ways of the world. Our culture is always striving to have the best, to develop or possess the latest and greatest gadgets, clothes, etc. And we get so caught up in work trying to get attain what we're led to believe is ideal. But in the long run what does that really get us? It's been my experience that what you end up is misery. Why? Because we are not made for this world. And what our soul longs for is Heavenly things.

For myself I have to remember to choose wisely, to walk in the ways of the Lord, to do all things as unto Him.

Lord, help me to keep your face in focus. Guide me through this world show me how to remain in the world yet set apart from it.
