🔴The Wrong Focus

Written by: Torrie Slaughter

Each time we read the Bible, something different should become visible. After all, it is the living Word. How we apply historical knowledge and wisely examine our behavior helps us reflect the light of Jesus.

As you read today's passages, remember to keep God as your focus. No matter what your current circumstance, God is the Author of all life. We have many examples of detestable behavior. (2 King 6:28-29) But we also have significant instances of faith (Acts 16:15).

I am guilty of not seeking the Lord to increase my vision and being led by the blind. I have sacrificed many things, in desperation, without carefully considering the consequences. I was choosing to preserve earthly life rather than be uncomfortable.
