Paul’s goal for his friends in Philippi spoke to me yesterday. Philippians 1:10a, “I want you to understand what really matters.” I am easily distracted by social media, news, and many other things. It is easy to spend too much time reading, discussing and thinking about all the information that is available. Apparently it isn’t just today that people get wrapped up in things that are not all that important. Paul says that he wants the Philippians to know what is most important. His list includes loving people, growing in the knowledge of God, living a pure life and producing godly fruit in our lives. I am taking specific steps to reduce the flow of distracting information so I can focus on the things that really matter. I pray that you will do this as well.
I am taking a break from much of my social media. Devotionals will be posted at Northside Church of the Nazarene’s Facebook and our website:
