MORNING MEDITATIONS AND FOOD FOR THOUGHT!
HOW WATCHFUL ARE YOU?
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
We are admonished in Matthew 26: 41 to, "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: for the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Also, in 1 Cor. 16:13, we are told to, "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, Be strong."
To Watch means to observe attentively over a period of time. We are to pay attention and be on our guard so we won't fall into temptations and sin. We are to be looking for the Lord's coming. If we are distracted by this world and even the good things, like service to the Lord, we will miss the signs. We are so easily distracted and caught up with what we like to do and participate in.
1 Cor. 16:13 tells us to watch against all of our 'Seen and Unseen' enemies and to trust Him who is invisible. Have courage and patience as we do and suffer His will.
HOW WATCHFUL ARE YOU AND I? This is serious stuff! Let us help one another to be watchful. Let us not engage one another in activities or things that will distract from what is important to God.
