Jesus said: “…I say unto all, watch.” (Mark 13:37)
I’ve often pondered the distinction between “watching” and “watching out”.
I realize that watching out keeps our focus on error – on the bad stuff – and brings with it a sense of insecurity and paranoia.
On the other hand, watching or keeping watch is a spiritual activity which means mentally staying alert and keeping our focus on God, good. Watching can also mean watching your thoughts and determine if thoughts are from God or not.
Thoughts from God always include a sense of spiritual dominion, freedom, peace & joy.
These are the good thoughts – the only thoughts we need to listen to. Imagine living in a society where everyone only listened to good thoughts? It’s an interesting thing to think about.
