Don't Get Carried Away


If you get some supernatural vision or hear some strange voice in the night, don't get too carried away. It could be God or it could be indigestion, and you don't want to misinterpret one for the other.

The Director


... realize our Director is our Higher Power, who gives us the play we're in and the ability to act [our part]. Although many people may share the stage with us, it's not up to us to direct them. They have their own direction.

Who's Right

Carelessness

We should have no carelessness about us either in the way we worship God, or even in the way we eat and drink.

Beware of becoming careless over the small details of life and saying, "Oh that will have to do for now."

Small Stuff


Lord, I can get so hung up on the small stuff that I let it ruin a day that is yet another gift from You. Help me stay focused on the beauty and purpose of life and let the little stuff go.
