1 Corinthians 7:35 (NASB)
“This I say for your own benefit; not to put a restraint upon you, but to promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord.”
Recently my son was asked to do a devo for the teens. He was so excited to do it, and he was working really hard at it. When I asked him what he was going to teach on that night, he said “Distractions.” While talking about it he mentioned how TV, internet, tablets and phones are a big distraction for him from doing his chores or homework. He taught me something that day. I realized that I have the same distractions; not from doing my homework or chores, but from my devotion to the Lord.
You see when I get back from my distractions I get to work. I get back to my hobbies. I get back to my chores, but the last thing on my mind is getting back to doing what the Lord has asked me to do! I have allowed distractions to distract me from what the Lord has asked of me… do his will and bring many to salvation. I’m glad Scott asked my son to teach a lesson, because he just taught his dad a lesson.
