Hold On to the Good

Posted on November 29, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Scripture  "Hold on to the good."  1 Thessalonians 5:21

Observation  My default is to let go of things after the new car smell wears off, or when the flat screen is everywhere, or what I have becomes so common I don't miss it.

Application  So, hold on to the good - what does that mean???  What is it the writer is trying to say?  I think it goes something like this;

If what you have as a follower of Jesus is worth anything make sure it becomes everything.

If what you have as a follower of Jesus has become ordinary make it everything again.


By letting go of the plastic things, the digital images, the approval of others, the desire for the new the flashy the quick fix.

Prayer  I have traded away some rich blessings Father, help me regain them moment by moment as I made wise choices, following close to You today.
