A situation at work recently prompted someone to ask the question, "Why is he invested in this?" They were referring to my interest in revising programs for the area in which I teach. Based on the question, it seems that the person asking the question was used to others that were not "awake" or not desiring to be engaged in the process.
As we think about our spiritual lives, we have choices to make. We can go with the flow of the world around us and there may even be times that we have to work within the systems of the world. However, we cannot allow ourselves to be lulled to sleep or silenced. When there are opportunities to stand up for what is right, we need to be awake and ready to respond. We can know truth by knowing God. With God's truth, we can be prepared to care and to stay awake and ready to respond according to His will!
Care because you know God's truth and are ready to stay awake and stand up for it!
Thank You for allowing me to know Your truth. Help me to care, to stay awake, and to be ready to respond according to Your guidance. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
