In this hyperconnected world in which so many people spend so much time in social media, do you find yourself wondering what your network thinks of you?
I think, if we’re honest, most of us would say “Hmm…yes…” to that.
The more important question, however, is “What does God think of me?
We know that God loves us. And wow, what an amazing and wonderful truth that is.
But what does God really think of the way that we live in this world? And does it matter?
The scripture says that God knows our hearts. In fact, He knows us better than we know ourselves.
He also told us that if we are to spend eternity with Him, we must return His love, with all of our heart, with all of our soul, with all of our mind, and with all of our strength. So, yes, it matters.
Fortunately, when you fully realize how much He loves you, what He has done for you, and the amazing plan He has for YOUR life, it’s easy to surrender to His love.
It might not be so easy, however, to fit your actions to your intentions. That is why He offers us His Spirit to lead, guide and empower us to do what we know we should do.
So here’s a couple of reflective questions to finish this thought today:
Knowing that He knows your heart, your thoughts, your attitudes, and your actions:
Would you say that your life is spent pursuing the applause of Heaven or the applause of people?
Which means more to you?
And which do you think means most to Him?
I think you know…
P.S. ~ Hat-tip to the person who coined the phrase: “What God thinks about me is infinitely more important than what others think about me.” If you know who they are, feel free to let me know in comments below…
