Worthless pursuits lead to where?

“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.

Tough read.

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?
