I met with my young adult group today at church (and ate a lot of pizza- seems like when you are on a diet, all you can think about is food haha!). We talked about being spiritually dehydrated and what that may mean in our lives. One guy brought up the fact that even in our conversation tonight, we were talking about how we do different church related things, and they can be for our own benefit, and not to glorify God, even when we mean well. This hit home with me- not doing things seeking anything for myself, but to give of myself to God. I mainly listen to Christian music. Not always, but often. It puts me in a better mood, and I have an overall positive start to my day when I listen. There are no cuss words, no questionable lyrics. Usually that means my language and thoughts are a little better just by concentrating on those things. But am I doing it for a lift to my day, or to praise the creator? Not that there is anything wrong with listening to music that I like, I just want to be intentional with my actions.
