“Fixate on the Right Thing”

Yep, I Said It – “Sometimes when it comes to giving God praise it really is a sacrifice. Don’t get caught up in believing in ‘luck.’ We’ve got to give praise to whom all praise is due.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Hebrews 13:15 (KJV) – “By him, therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”

“This morning I took in scripture from Hebrews, a true letter of encouragement. I was reminded this morning that sometimes we allow the demands on our lives to occupy the time that should be spent praising and worshiping God. I’m not talking about opening up our Bibles on Sunday, turning to online Church services, closing our Bibles until the next Sunday, and then check off a box on our ‘Do Good’ list. No sir, what I’m talking about is offering praise when we don’t feel like it, giving thanks when we’re struggling, and worshiping when we feel like we just can’t go on! I’m talking about KEEPING OUR EYES FIXATED ON GOD AT ALL TIMES! Sometimes we’ve got to take our eyes off our problems, relieve our minds from the mess going on around us, and social distance from social media along with all its political and insensitive commentators. The bottom line is we’ve got to lose focus on anything that is not in accordance with His desires. Please realize that the mess we deal with on a day to day is temporary. No matter the political party in office – there’s term limits. No matter what our financial circumstances – God does not condemn people because they are rich, nor does He justify others because they are poor. And no matter what unfair or prejudicial distinctions our neighbors might harbor – they’ve got to leave that mess at the door if they are going to continue to be our neighbors when our work down here is done! #PonderThat!” – #ToddCPittman
