“They followed worthless idols and themselves became worthless.” 2 Kings 17:15.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 2 Kings 17, 2 Chronicles 28, Psalm 46, and James 3.
This line is obviously true.
If I chase things that are worthless, then I am heading in that same direction.
Think of the time wasted. The brain cells compromised.
How often I know what I’m doing/watching is worthless, yet I persist. That inner voice warns me, but I choose not to listen. O wretched man that I am!
My life must be lived attached tightly to God. I cannot venture into paths of my own choosing. God is not mocked.
I must set my day on a course that will honor Him. There is nothing to be gained away from Him that is lasting.
“Lord, I need You every second. I cannot trust my own intuitions. Keep me from worthless pursuits. I want to honor You in everything I do. Guide me, O thou great Jehovah.”
Can we expect God’s blessing when we chase worthless things?
