Timeless truths from Philippians 3:1.
Reminders. We all need them…Often! “To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.” We need to be reminded of truths, priorities, and eternity. The other day I was at the hospital, “Cherish the moments you have together” a sweet, widow reminded me as I spoke of my wife.
We have reminders all around us. We wear wedding bands to remind us of our vows. Unfortunately, if we are not careful, our “smartphones” will remind us of upcoming events but not what is important.
We take a daily dip in the timeless truths of the Scripture to remind ourselves of what is true. Our world will pressure you into conforming. But the constant reminder of true value is priceless. Remember, your children are going to catch more about what is important to you than what you say! If you prioritize Jesus Christ and every week remind them of the importance of worship through your prioritization, you serve them well.
“Be careful… Drive safe… “ and other phrases we heard growing up were safeguards. They served us well. Well worn phrases, like well worn clothes, feel comfortable. They become ingrained in the fiber of our soul. Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance of Me…” The Psalmist said, “Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Safeguard are like guardrails. They keep us from going off the road into a ditch.
Thank you for reading this devotional as it also serves as a reminder of the timeless truths of Scripture.
“Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.” Philippians 3:1 NASB
