Fix Your Gaze

Yesterday I wrote a little bit about God having the power to light your way.  I thought I would follow that up with a little real guidance on one way he does that – straight from the wisdom of Solomon, and something that is on my mind this week.

20 My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen to my words. 21 Never let them get away from you. Remember them and keep them in your heart. 22 They will give life and health to anyone who understands them. 23 Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. 24 Never say anything that isn’t true. Have nothing to do with lies and misleading words. 25 Look straight ahead with honest confidence; don’t hang your head in shame. 26 Plan carefully what you do, and whatever you do will turn out right. 27 Avoid evil and walk straight ahead. Don’t go one step off the right way. Proverbs 4:20-27 Good News Translation (GNT)

10 Words

I am still attempting to recover from spending the weekend in Gatlinburg with thousands of teenagers, so my brain is a little cloudy this morning.  It might be the lack of sleep, or it may be all of the new things I learn about teenagers this weekend!

Anyway, it was a great weekend, and I did learn a lot about a lot of things as I listened to several great men teach about that guy the Christos.

The thing that keeps running around my head this morning it this simple statement from the Christ while he was on this Earth.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” John 14:6 (ESV)

Those 10 words are pretty remarkable, and set this rabbi apart from all the others.

I am sure you will see some more references to that come out in the next few weeks, as I processes all I learned, but today, think about those words and if his way and your way are the same way?
