Proverbs 3:13 (msg)
Recently Pastor Aman of an Arabic Christian church preached in our morning worship. A translator stood to his right, sometimes looking puzzled. Pastor Aman repeated his phrases and the translator would smile and give us his English version.
Before giving us his scripture for the day, Pastor Aman said, “One day I followed a taxi with a bumper sticker that said:
Don’t follow me because I myself am lost.”
What a great bumper sticker for writers. We need to choose wisely in whom we follow, Jesus first, author fan pages with wisdom and good informational blogs. No matter the genre we write, we need to study God’s Word, and ask Him to guide our minds and fingers.
Dear friend, guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life;
don’t for a minute lose sight of them.
They’ll keep your soul alive and well…
No need to panic over alarms or surprises,
or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner,
Because God will be right there with you;
he’ll keep you safe and sound.
Proverbs 3:21-22, 25-26 (msg)
Prayer: Father, thank you for reminding me to guard my mind and soul. Thank you, too for the promise You will be with and guide us in all our ways—if we but ask. Amen
