- Colossians 2:6 through Colossians 2:7 (NIV) So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Christ needs to be our guiding compass... Period. As soon as we let anything else begin to warp our way of thinking it will lead us in a direction we should not go. I think that I don't take the time often enough to re-evaluate my priorities and keep my "head in the game". Without being purposeful about staying rooted in Christ, I find myself distracted and making to many decisions on my own.
As we all know when we start to let that happen it can only lead to bad things all around. Put god first...
