Hempy (2 Corinthians 11:12-16)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “hempy.”  You really don't know what to expect in this life.  Sometimes things are looking up, and all of a sudden they can go south pretty quickly.  In today's passage, the apostle Paul recognizes that he must continually work to show the believers how much he cares for them.  He has given his life to Christ, and wants nothing more for God's people than to experience life the way he knows is possible.  But in the midst of all this is the Evil One.  Paul knows that to excel in this life he and all of the believers must continue to keep their eyes open for what can potentially end her any type of progress.

“…for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”
~2 Corinthians 11:14

My question is: what are the actions that you are taking continually to stay on the path of progress?  Each of us has tons of responsibility in our lives.  And, that never changes.  Wherever God puts you, you will have to do your best to invest your time into things that matter.  My prayer is that you keep your eyes focused on what is important, and that you are always ready for the shady, or hempy, games of the evil one.

Praying for you,
