Who are you claiming? What set you representing? Who are you down with? Oh and who are you up with? Isn’t it strange how we are ride or die for our football teams yet we won’t go to church in the rain? Yea, we will buy shirts, license plates, flags for our cars, hats, blankets, jerseys and even decorations for the house in our favorite team color and logos yet we won’t even pay our tithes. We get our boo name tattooed on our bodies yet we won’t give our heart to God. We give all our attention to social media and none to the message that God left in His word. Who are you claiming? Dearly beloved, God didn’t say we couldn’t enjoy life because Ecclesiastes 2:24 says, “There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God,” but in doing so don’t forget about the one who gave you life! Yea, you can rep your favorite team but don’t allow that to overshadow the ultimate team leader, God. Yea, you can love your boo but God should always be the head. You can have a life but let it be pleasing unto God. You don’t have to stop dancing when you become a Christian, just change some of the moves, partners and places. You don’t have to stop drinking but be mindful of what you consume because the bible says wine is good for the stomach but nobody should get drunk. You don’t have to stop living but live in your purpose! Don’t be ashamed to rep God because then He’ll be ashamed to rep you! Don’t be only down for God but be for God when you’re up as well. Who are you claiming? Can you honestly finish this sentence? “As for me and my house …”
Be a willing worker for God, who is not ashamed yet one who truthfully handles His word by studying to present yourself as one of God’s approved (2 Timothy 2:15)!
