Influenced

Today's reading: Galatians 4:8-20

As we move further into Galatians, Paul continues to reach out to these relatively new believers to right their thinking and get them back on track spiritually. As I thought about the situation Paul is addressing, what stood out to me was the powerful influence the company we keep can have on our thinking and actions, and how that's especially true when we're not in a strong position spiritually speaking. That's why guarding our hearts and minds with God's Word is so very important. Because when we take in God's truth, it builds us up spiritually and empowers us to stand strong when we encounter false teaching and things that contradict how God desires for us to live.

What influence do your friends and family have on your thinking and actions? How are you influencing others? Are you filling your mind and heart with God’s Word and relying on it to stand strong for Christ? Tami
