A frequently recurring comment on many of my report cards growing up was…”Tim seems to day dream a lot. He’s always looking out the window.” Interestingly I have seen that same comment reappear on some of the report cards of our children. What do you day dream about? Where does your mind tend to go when not captivated by the demands of your daily responsibilities?
In preparing for this week’s Sunday morning study in Hebrews 3:1-6, it became instantly clear that God desires and directs all of His children to “Consider Jesus”. He commands us to personally and specifically have our minds focused on His Son. Do you ever just think about Jesus? I certainly think about, day dream about my wife, my children, and my grand children regularly. My mind goes to their “channel” and stays there for a while just thinking about them, sometimes worrying about them, and often praying about them. Clearly there are times when my mind is just stuck on thinking about them for some time…but how about Jesus?
What I’m talking about is different than talking about “spiritual things”, discussing biblical issues, or worrying about church stuff. What a joy it is when my mind falls on Him and then stays on Him as I’m driving, walking, reading, listening to Christian music, or just sitting quietly for a few moments. So, I hope to see you Sunday morning as we explore this idea more fully in our worship together.
