“But watch in all things” (2 Timothy 4:5).
“It’s going to be a big storm, isn’t it, Daddy?” ten-year-old Jason said. “I don’t like the way that sky is a-lookin’ in the southwest!” the little boy shouted. “Jason Everett, you sound more and more like your grandpa every day! You’re ten, but you sound like my dad as he watches the skies,” Lucas said as he messed up his young son’s head of hair. Within ten minutes, the tornado sirens started sounding! Jason was young, but he knew how to watch. This watching gives the idea of “being alert, understanding what is happening and thinking clearly.” Young Jason was pretty good in watching. There are many things for which we must be watchful as well.
For today: “Keep your heads and think clearly” is another way of saying “Watch in all things.” Oh, how I need this today. How about you?
