For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings. (Proverbs 5:21)
We as people seem to surround ourselves with pleasant tokens of affection. Such as a picture we might hang on our wall or perhaps a knickknack. Some sort of plant or flower in our garden. A reminder of a trip we may have taken. It may be a special article of clothing, our favorite coffee cup or some tasty food. Certain places we visit and so on. Activities or objects that strike a chord of fulfillment adding different degrees of enrichment to our lives.
As we prepare for our approaching campaign, come see, "this man of God" at the Tampa convention center; could this also be "tokens of affection" with our heavenly father? When Jesus ponders this event, do you think it strikes a chord of affection? So what has been your involvement in preparation for this campaign? To ponder is to weigh mentally. This means that Father God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost are thinking about your goings in such matters.
When you came to church this morning, the Lord was thinking of you. While here, Jesus will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing for you. But what about all the other people who are not here? As we leave Sunday service, will your goings include tokens of affection toward the lost and dying of this world? Have you made provisions to spread, "the good news?" May be your only thoughts about the upcoming meeting is; how will I find the time to attend or squeeze this into my hectic and busy schedule? Get involved!!! Schedule time to tell and invite others. Be instant in season and out of season because Father God is pondering all our goings.
