DADs…how often daily do we fall prey to the world’s messages and to the world’s views?
I think the car industry has a huge piece of the corner market, creating the desire in our minds placing each one of us behind the wheel promising a new adventure and a new life!
This new driving experience promises us a sharper image…a new career…sometimes even a new family! We catch ourselves thinking…"if only I had that car."
At Christmas time the car commercials are relentless!
In the commercials cars are marketed as the perfect gift that every little boy dreams about growing up, and illustrates a storybook ending of a little boy now as an adult realizing his dream becoming a reality!
Honestly, I do not know too may people in my circle of friends waking up on Christmas morning with a car under the tree…but maybe one day?
So how much of your waking and sleeping moments do you imagine…dream…desire something else, anything else…promising something different…promising excitement?
How many times have we all obtained some of those things and very shortly after receiving or achieving realize its just not enough?
But nonetheless its like the line in the song that goes…”I want it all and I want now.”
In Romans 1:25, Paul shared just how quickly even in the early church how its members allowed rules, ideas, and idols to get in the way from the creator of all...
25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped
and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.
The truth DADs…collecting things gathered here on earth, trophies, careers, accolades, and even people without building a foundation deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ daily, is meaningless, empty, and fruitless.
It is IN our creator sacrificing His one and only Son for US…we find the VICTORY eternal!
NOT in the things external the world has to offer.
To God Be the Glory!
“Get in the game”…
today is game day…
and so is every day…
God gives you!
So…C’mon men…Suit Up!
