Selah: Appetites

I've been feverishly working through this book called Keeping Our Children's Heart by Steve and Terri Maxwell. Over the last week I've been meditating on some thing they talk about: the appetites and habits you grow or instill in your children. Over the last several weeks I have been examining my actions and asking my self is this a godly appetite or a worldly appetite. Does this draw me closer to God or draw me away from Him? I've been astonished at how many things do distract me from God!!! I would like to share some scripture from what I read this morning as it validates the whole process of searching out not only the appetites you instill in your children but also the appetites that you par take in each day! Are they for God or against God? Selah

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (The Message)
Don't become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That's not partnership; that's war. Is light best friends with dark? Does Christ go strolling with the Devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands? Who would think of setting up pagan idols in God's holy Temple? But that is exactly what we are, each of us a temple in whom God lives. God himself put it this way: "I'll live in them, move into them; I'll be their God and they'll be my people. So leave the corruption and compromise; leave it for good," says God."Don't link up with those who will pollute you. I want you all for myself. I'll be a Father to you; you'll be sons and daughters to me." The Word of the Master, God.

As this week has been a BUSY week, I chose not to participate in Tackle It Tuesday or Wordless Wednesday. I've also decided to alternate the weeks that I join in these posts. There is lots to catch you up on, so I do hope you can stop by next week and check out all I've been able to cross of that never ending To Do List!!!!!!
