Greetings my fellow Christian warriors! I Peter 5: 8 says to be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. The holidays are upon us. Merriment is in the air. Some will celebrate this time of year as the birth of Jesus, and many others want to get their fair share. Fair share: fair share of all of the money people are willing to spend, a fair share of others who may carelessly overspend. Then there are those who look to hook or crook. They are willing to sift our pockets. These people do not even play by the book. So the bottom line is that we must be careful. We must remain aware because this time of year is about expressing joy and love, but some are waiting to pounce like a cat after a dove. Beware of your surroundings, be alert, and be quick on your feet. Actually, it's your mind that must remain sharp. A crook doesn't want you/us to be aware that they are a shark. No need for a spirit of fear. We still have every reason to cheer. But we must be aware of what an evil one will try to put down if we want to stick around. As Christians, we are more than a conqueror & we have got the power!
