Diluting Attitude

Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

Jeremiah 6:16 NKJV


Midweek Thoughts


Do you ever see a word and look up its meaning? Maybe it’s a word you don’t remember having seen before or maybe it’s a word you just want to look up to get the proper context.  I know I do this from time to time.  Recently, during a study and discussion, I came across the words “diluting attitude”.  I decided to Google to see if I could get the proper context.

I found an area that said the following: “Dilution of ourselves happens when we let other things take our time and/or attention away from our primary goals in life”.  I believe it was from a post on https://medium.com called “Don’t Dilute Yourself”.  I found this meaning to have an impact on me.

We often let things take our time and attention away from God.  We let things come between us and our Heavenly Father.  This creates a distance.  Often, we don’t even realize it is happening.  It happens so slowly, like water trickling out of a broken faucet.  Slowly but surely, it creates a problem.  Our job is to identify this problem and what it is that is coming between us and God, then do something about it!

When we let things come between us and God, we are actually putting up a barrier to the eternal promise.  We are letting ourselves get sucked into sin and away from God.  We mustn’t let anything come between us and the peaceful, beautiful eternity that awaits us with our Heavenly Father.  Jesus died to save us so we could live eternally with Him.  He did not die in vain!

Whatever it is that is “diluting” our attitudes about things in this world must be identified and stopped.  We must rid ourselves of all the things of this world that come between us and God.  Step into the light, His light, and take hold of His hand.  Jesus’ death meant something incredible and brings with it a wonderful gift.  Accept that gift, don’t turn away from it.

Let’s not let anything come between us and God.  Study, pray, and hold onto Him.  Eternity is waiting!
