Bible Discussion

More to Life
Today’s discussion is on Out Of Your Mind?

Beware lest you forget the Lord who
brought you out of the land of Egypt.
–Deuteronomy 6:12

How is our relationship with God? We actually fail to remember the One who created us and redeemed us. We’re no different from Israel in the Old Testament. Speaking to His people, God gave these instructions:

Focus on life’s purpose, and keep your priorities straight (Deuteronomy 6:4-5).
Become so familiar with the Bible that is a part of what you think and feel and do (v.6).
Talk about God to your children, and look for opportunities to tell them of His love (v.7).
Write reminders to yourself and put them where they can be easily seen (vv 8-9).
Enjoy with gratitude whatever health and happiness you have (vv.10-11).
Realize that your need for God is not limited to times of obvious stress or danger.

The only way to keep God in mind is to acknowledge and enjoy Him throughout each day. Let the mind of Christ our Savior live in us from day to day, and by His love and power controlling all we do and say. Let not your mind be overtaken by the world’s thoughts, and let God be not forgotten. If God seems far away, guess who moved?
