Through the email, I receive 2 daily devotionals (KLOVE & Greg Laurie) and 1 weekly from James MacDonald.
I find it interesting that this same verse was in both of the daily devotionals:
“Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” James 4:4
Why do I find this interesting? One of my favorite songs by Toby Mac is “Lose my Soul” From this song are these words, “I don’t want to gain the whole world and lose my soul.”
The other interesting thing, is in church this past weekend, hubby was following along in a verse, then got to reading other passages. He turned to me and had me read a verse. It was the same message as in James 4:4, but not the same words. He looked at me and said, “It’s just like that song.”
Okay, okay, okay … another hit me over the head with a sledge hammer moment. (I get those from time to time when I’m being dense.) I must still be a puppet of the world … I need to find those strings and cut them!
