"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
What am I following? Do I "buy into" things of men - their reasoning and sayings? Or do I measure everything up to Christ?
One way that I can test the answer to these questions is by asking one more: "What am I spending most of my time in?" If I spend most of my time listening to the world, reading the world's material, watching the world's programs and videos, and talking with worldly friends, my thinking will automatically lean towards philosophies, vain deceit, men's traditions, and the world's rudiments. However, if I spend that time reading God's Word, listening to preachers who preach God's Word, fellowshipping with believers, and embracing things of God, my thinking will automatically lean towards things of Christ. Today I have a choice to make: which path will I choose?
