Vigilance

I like this verse about guarding our soul from Joshua 23:11 as paraphrased in The Message:

Now, vigilantly guard your souls: Love God, your God.

Vigilance is so important to our daily lives.  It’s easy to let small things creep into our lives and take over.  I think about it in our financial journey, and how easy it is to slip into old habits.  Really, it’s important for any daily discipline.  Another great passage from 1 Corinthians 10:12 as translated by the ESV:

Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.”

Without keeping constant vigilance over our lives, we may find ourselves on shakier ground than we supposed.  Whether it’s our finances, our relationships, or our spiritual habits, we need to be vigilant. We need to watch for the pitfalls and old habits we used to practice and keep them from resurfacing.
