Praise Thursdays: A father’s lifestyle is contagious & Look out! Someone is watching.

A father’s lifestyle is contagious

 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” – James 3: 17

When your lifestyle as a father (or leader), you lead in the love of God and his wisdom, the character you exhibit and the influence you have will impact those who are important to you in life. Wisdom leads to Harmony and peace, what human wisdom leads to arrogance and dissection.  Examine yourself, what kind of wisdom do you depend on? Remember, God wants your very best – so does everyone else you influence, know, and love.

Look out! Someone is watching.

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3

The idea of someone watching seldom occurs to us as we go through life. So often, we say that we want and do exactly what we selfishly choose to do. We need to realize that nothing ever escaped the notice of God and nothing ever surprises him. Proverbs 16:3 says, ” Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.” When we commit our ways to the Lord, everything changes and pleasing God becomes our priority in life. Because God cares, he wants to bless us with his love and mercy. May your life reflect the love that God so generously gives to those who follow him.

Praise Thursday – July 16th

Today was Praise Thursday on the Afternoon Drive!

I shared some devotionals from an awesome ministry called Our Daily Bread. You can check out their website over here for tons of daily devotionals.

The first devotional I shared was titled Ordinary People, and it was all about how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary work for His Kingdom. You can check out that devotional here and the verse that goes with it over here.

Next, I shared Seeing Beyond Loss, which was about looking to God instead of dwelling on disappointment or sadness. You can read the whole thing here. You can see the verses that go with this over here.

Lastly, I shared one that I think is VERY important to today’s society, and it’s called Web Wisdom. This devotional is all about asking for God’s wisdom and guidance before you comment something rude and condescending, or post something you know you probably shouldn’t. The whole devotional won’t be online until August, but you can find the verses that go with it here.

I told you about SonFest 2015, which will take place on Saturday, September 26th on the campus of MVNU. Tickets are on sale now, and you can find out how to get those and more information on SonFest over here.

Plus, I let you know that Michael W. Smith will be coming to Columbus this fall. He will be at Grove City Church of the Nazarene on Monday, September 28th at 7:00 pm. You can find out all the information on that over here.

Our Word of the Day was celerity, a noun meaning rapidity of motion or action, or swiftness. You can read more on that over here.

Also, don’t forget to check out all the videos our Big Blue Crew put together at the Nazarene Youth Conference in Louisville, Kentucky last week. There are 6 different videos and they are all so cool! You can find them all below: (just click on each title to watch that particular video)
