Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.Psalm 37:5-6
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.
Most people like new stuff. From the youngest of six children to the poor man with a rusty vehicle; there is that longing for new clothes or a new car. New stuff is all around us tempting us to BUY! Stores, stores and more stores filled with spanking new objects.
I did a search on animals that like shiny things. This is what I found regarding why crows like sparkling things: “The same reason humans collect shiny things. It marks their territory, shows hunter/gatherer skills, and improves the possibility for breeding with other crows. You will find that collecting shiny things is also learned behavior.” Magpies and raccoons are noted to be attracted to bling too!
With all this in mind, let’s approach a new year with seeking shiny new ways of drawing closer to God. If we are strengthened spiritually, we will shine the light of Jesus even more. Maybe it’s time to find a new time or way to study the Bible. Perhaps, someone’s prayer life is suffering. What about taking a walk and talk with the Heavenly Father. Ask Him to show you a new way to grow in Him. Let’s learn something new. Amen!
