Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the lord and turn away from evil. – Proverbs 3:7
In the Christmas season, it’s easy to get really busy. We get caught up in the excitement of presents, giving, and shopping. In all the busyness, it’s often easy to forget to include God in our daily lives. Many times when things are going good, we don’t really stop to include God in our day to day activities and decision making. If we’re not careful, we can fall into the trap of thinking that we’ve got everything together in our own ability.
However, God encourages us to not get busy and impressed with what we can do in our own strength. Instead we should be respecting God, spending time with him, and turning away from the things that keep us from Him. To do this, you might have to take a break from Snapchat or binge watching your favorite show, but spend some time this holiday season getting close to God.
Challenge yourself today to spend some time identifying any areas in your life where you’ve become impressed with what you can do by yourself. Choose to give those areas to God and to spend time getting to know God.
