2 Timothy 2:4. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
Thought for the Day: Your Assignment Is To Please Him
Reflection for the Day: Distractions Must Be Avoided
While Paul was in prison, he wrote to Timothy with words of encouragement and instruction. One of the areas that he addressed is the need to stay focused on the Lord, and not to become entangled with the "affairs of this life". Anyone that is chosen to be a soldier must be free to fulfill his assignment. Distractions must be avoided.
God has called you to fight the good fight of faith. He has assigned you to be a part of sharing and spreading the gospel message. You are to do this by being a living example, and by telling others of the goodness of the Lord. In order to be effective it is essential that you are not entangled with life’s affairs. Always remember your assignment is to please Him. Distractions must be avoided that you do not lose focus.
