Wake Up

Hebrews 3:13
Encourage yourselves daily while it is still “today,” so that none of you may grow hardened by the deceit of sin.

“Sin” is basically when we “turn away” from God’s desires…and choose our self-centered…ego-satisfying desires. It is choosing our “false self” over our “true self.” When we are engaged in building a “false self” we are truly unconscious to the real, present moment. Today…this moment…is a brand new opportunity to turn back to God and away from the self-gratifying ways that leave us empty. God holds no grudges…but always has and always will love you.

Suggested song of the day— “How Wonderful to Me” on the Live to Love album.
