Remember who you are:
Be holy 1 Pet 1:13-16
Be careful with what we engage in and who we engage in conversation with.
You are the children of light (v.8)
We shouldn’t give time/energy to ungodly, negative drama-filled situations (i.e. television)

Remember where you belong (v.5)
We belong in the kingdom. We are here in the world, surrounded by these things, we must live like an example. Phil 3:17-20
Be careful what we feed our minds. We have to try to maintain our place in Heaven.
Let’s not lose our place in Heaven over worldly lusts. Utilize the tools that we have and our spiritual family to help minimize distractions.

Remember where we are
As Christians, we are minorities in the world hoping to bring others to Christ.

Verses for Thought: John 17:13-18, 20 1, 1 John 2:15-17, John 15: 18-19

Hot Topic: How do you balance working in the Lord’s House with your regular life?

Time Management (Value) balancing your schedule, communicating, and using your resources.  Imagine your involvement…make it mandatory to be involved.  Throw yourself into the situation and minimize the time for foolishness and time for working with the Lord will become available.  We have to have a plan and make the most of the time that we are given.  John 4:3: recommend reading “A Purpose Driven Life” the content on how to plan your life is good (but the doctrine is off). Work on staying focused!
