Be a Berean...


So many things influence our daily life.  We don’t always notice these things around us.  But they do creep up and influence our decisions.

You might disagree with me but give me a moment here.

You got up this morning and brushed your teeth.  What toothpaste did you use?

You got dressed.  What clothes did you put on?

You then ate breakfast.  What did you eat?

You may have packed a lunch.  What did you pack your lunch in?

You drove to work.  What did you drive?


 Are you starting to see the pattern?


Everything we purchased was influenced by an advertisement, a friend, a billboard

We are influenced by everything around us, even when we don’t realize it.

It is easy to fall for the social media ‘influencers’ if we aren’t careful and not paying attention.

Be a Berean. 

You can listen to the message.  But make sure you research the message and make sure it is biblical based. Don’t let a ‘feel good’ message lead you astray.

There are a TON of good messages on social media.  But there are also a TON of incorrect messages out there. 

Ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment.  

Let Him be your Greatest Influencer.

Sometimes I need to take a break from it all and refocus on who is influencing me.  It helps to remove all the ‘noise’ and ask the Holy Spirit for clarity and discernment.

Who is influencing you today?



Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

Acts 17:11


And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— '

John 14:16


But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

John 14:26


But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

John 16:13

Stones of Remembrance...

We got good news yesterday.  Actually, three things happened that made me stop and thank God each time.  One was a reprieve from the storms ...
