Be ye mindful

"Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;"
1 Chronicles 16:15

We live in a world where mindless seems to be okay. One of the late-night talk shows has a segment where they randomly interview people on the street and ask them questions that seem to have obvious answers. I guess the answers aren't quite so obvious.

Question: "Who is the president of the United States?"

Answer: —blank stare—

This happens more times than we want to think.

Mindless eating … mindless entertainment … mindless violence … mindless work … mindless behavior … (you get the picture.)

But God wants us to be mindful — mindful of His covenant: His covenant which He commanded to a thousand generations.

How much of His covenant are you mindful of? Did you read your Bible today? Have you studied it this week? this month? this year?

Are you passing His covenant on to the next generation?

Be mindful.

that is such good insight. I have been praying for God to help me to slow my days down and help me to be mindful of His presence in my daily life. sometimes you are just going through the day not paying attention to very much at all and before you know it a whole month has passed you by. You would be amazed at how well it works. In fact, sometimes it works almost to well. There have been a few times I'm exhausted at 6:00 pm and praying for God to speed it up just a little so I can go to bed.
