I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his
craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the
simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3

Will you pause for a moment and think with me about the
standards of our day? Who sets them? Who determines what
is right? moral? correct? socially acceptable? just? fair?
how we should dress, think, act, behave?

Where are you in this world? in the flow of our culture?
Who sets the standards for you? Whose standard do you
come closer to--God's or the culture's?

Examine me, O holy and righteous Lord. Test my mind and
heart and show me any way in which I have strayed from my
devotion to You.

  1. I love this one! It's SO easy to get caught up in the flow of culture. I find it's a bit of fine tuning that is needed every day to draw me back to God. And if I spend time doing that then I always go back.
    Thanks for your kind words, Susie. I appreciate all of your comments.
    God bless,

  2. Such words of wisdom. It;s always good for me to step back a moment and "remember". BTW, Brooke is quite an amazing lady.
