Sunday's Sermon Summary 8/10/10

Today is Sunday, so I get to talk a little bit about what I learned in church today!  The sermon was on the importance of holiness.  The bible says that we are commanded to be holy because God is holy.  I really liked this message.  

Being holy means being set apart and devoted to God. I know it isn't always easy to set yourself apart, because it is much easier to try to blend in.  Blending in causes little controversy and avoids lots of tough decisions and confrontations.  But I think setting yourself apart is a good thing to practice, because being unique gives us the opportunity to stand out. 

The second part of being holy - my devotion to God - is a little more difficult for me to grasp.  I try my hardest to live a devoted life, but sometimes I get distracted by all of life's duties, responsibilities, and grandeurs.  This becomes especially hard in light of entrepreneurship.  I guess I just have to remember that devotion leads to direction, so without it I am lost.  Putting it into perspective like this helps me to realize that there is nothing more important that I can do for my business than to devote my life to God.

Happy Sunday!  I hope you have a fantastic week!
