Combating the evil of the world begins with us. As Christians, as parents, we must teach our children not to focus on the things of this world, but to focus on the things of the Lord. We must guard our hearts, our minds, and our eyes against the ways of the world. Instead, for ourselves and for our families, we should surround ourselves with things that glorify Him. That’s why we have chosen Philippians 4:8 as our Scripture focus for the week.
The only way to fix our thinking is to fix our thoughts on Him, and on those things pleasing to Him. Lord, help us keep our thoughts fixed on you.
