A Thought for Today: “Fleeing by Pursuing”
OK, so fleeing means running away from while pursuing means chasing after.
How can this work out? How can we do both at the same time?
Please read the following verses.
22 Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
24 And the Lord’s servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.
25 Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth,
26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
When we put the Lord God in charge of our lives, He will have us flee the bad and pursue the good.
Put Him in charge of your life today.
