thinker.jpgConfession time. I can’t get this off my mind. Maybe it’s time I get it off my chest as well. No matter where I look, no matter what I read, hear, see or do there is an overwhelming message that is chasing me. It all boils down to two words: Kingdom Minded. The books I have been reading, the sermon series the past two weeks and the music I have been hearing all seem to be screaming the same message….Kingdom Minded.

Maybe it is the next step in the journey for me. Maybe God is calling me to rethink some things that have become comfortable, safe and bland in my walk. It’s like I have taken this huge filter of two words and I’m running everything I do from the moment I wake, till I go to bed at night through it.

When I wake up in the morning, do I think, pray and anticipate what I can and will do to advance God’s kingdom that day?

When I go to bed at night, do I reflect on what I might have missed, where I can grow and pray for the kingdom opportunites the next day?

Do my words, actions and thoughts reflect the Kingdom?

Will anyone think of the kingdom from something they saw in my life?

How about worship?

Do my kids see a father that reflects the kingdom and understand the importance it must have in their lives?

It has been on my mind and hopefully is starting to show in my actions. I’m tired of being simple minded. It’s time to be kingdom minded!
