If you have a Twitter account take a moment and look at who you are following? You will find the things you enjoy. Twitter can be a good measurement for us to understand the things we follow the most. It will help us to know what might be the obstacles in our life to following Jesus.
One of the things we must understand is Jesus will not take second place in our life. He will not be put on a shelf. He will just watch us go and follow after other things when the answer is in Him all along. And most of the things we follow are actually gifts from God but we worship the gift instead of the giver of that gift.
One of the big ones in our culture is Sports. Did you know the SEC Conference spends nearly 1 billion dollars on athletics in their conference. WOW!!! In fact they spend more than some countries in the world produce annually. And what is actually a gift from God gets worship instead of the giver of that gift.
There are many things we end up giving glory to as gifts and ignoring the giver. And those are the things we are following.
So this week be open to looking at the things you are following. See how they take your time and see that they are gifts from God and we should worship God and not the gifts He gives.
Jesus Follower, Husband, Father, and Pastor and trying to keep those in the right order....
