For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will.
Christ-followers believe our thoughts and actions have eternal implications. Christians should be asking ourselves if we are investing in and meditating on the right things. Another way to ask this would be to question what are we living for? Are we living for success? Is money driving us? Perfectionism? Are we motivated by the desire not to let anyone down? Are we afraid if we don’t say “yes” that we will miss out? Christians are called to live for Christ alone and in order to live out this mission we must carefully consider how we are using our time and resources.
