Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Matthew 12:30

Yesterday we talked about our worldview. Your worldview influences how you see the world, how you make decisions, how you interact with other people, and many different things about your life.

When it really comes down to it, there are two worldviews out there.

  1. Biblical Worldview
  2. Everything else.

That might seem oversimplified, but it’s true according to the Bible. Today’s verse tells us that we’re either for God or we’re against God. That means we’re either letting the Bible be the basis for making all our decisions, or we’re not. We’re either letting God determine truth and what’s right or we’re not.

Whoever is not with me is against me. And anyone who does not work with me is working against me. – Matthew 12:30 (ERV)

We see in this verse that if we’re not working with God, we’re working against Him. And we probably aren’t out there actively trying to go against God, but if we’re not actively working with Him, He says we’re against Him.

So when it comes to making decisions, seeing the world around us, things like that, we’ve got to be aware that we’re either doing those things looking through the lens of the Bible or we’re not. And anytime we’re not, then we’re not working with God.

So today, take some time to think about that. Have you let the Bible influence your thoughts? Do you let it be your source of truth? Or do you rely on what your friends think, or what you hear on TV? Today, determine to get the Bible’s thoughts on the issues. See what God says and then let Him become the main source for your worldview.
