Usually I ignore mass emails. Not that they are all bad, but to me they seem to be chain-letters offspring.
This one got me thinking. I've read it before and deleted it before. Not because I disagree with it's content, but because it is too easy to just click forward and send it to everyone in your address book.
To me it doesn't mean anything to just forward everything willy-nilly. It is critical to practice what we preach even if our preaching is done by forwarding an email.
That is why I have chosen to post a part of the most recent email about GOD on this blog instead of clicking forward. I needed to take the time to reflect on what I was reading and make sure that I was being the kind of Christ Follower the email was talking about.
So read this post and make of it what you will. I intend to be more deliberate about living as a Christ Follower instead of only saying I am as a tag on my signature.
I want to Follow God's Trail as the Waodoni Indians say.
God, when I received this e-mail, I thought ..I don't have time for this ... And, this is really inappropriate during work.
Then, I realized that this kind of thinking is Exactly, what has caused lot of the problems in our world today..
We try to keep God in church on Sunday morning...
Maybe, Sunday night...
And, the unlikely event of a midweek service.
We do like to have Him around during sickness...
And, of course,at funerals.
However, we don't have time, or room, for Him during work or play...
Because.. That's the part of our lives we think we can, and should, handle on our own.
May God forgive me for ever thinking that t here is a time or place where HE
is not to be FIRST in my life.
We should always have time to remember all HE has done for us.
