​What's got your Attention? By Don Salmon
July 1, 2015
Happy Canada Day
It's Canada Day and for a lot of families, it's a day of Celebration, Travel, BBQ's, Picnics and Parties.


Some have been planning and organizing for weeks. Shopping, cleaning, laundry, looking for that favourite red and white shirt.  You know the deal.  Excitement is in the air. It's a Holiday and a Big Day!

Canadians get all caught up in their Devotion to our Freedom and Heritage.

The Apostle Paul, points to another Devotion in his letter to The Colossians. 


Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.  Colossians 4:2
 

The word devotion means an ardent commitment to a purpose. It implies constancy, dedication, and a ferverent focus.
 

I wonder if we gave as much attention to Prayer as we do to Canada Day, how it would change us?  Would we avoid distractions, have softer hearts, be more attentive to God's will?
 

The verse goes on to say being watchful and thankful.  It's easy to be thankful to God on a day like today, but personally speaking, I've not done as well with the watchful part.

 
This is not my GrandParents Canada. Society and Government, The Charter of Rights have changed this country.  Canada is not what it once was, and it's not easy to be vocal about how we've made sin an acceptable, and even promoted part, of Canadian life.

 
Paul goes on to say  Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one.  Colossians 4:6

 
We have to be careful how we reach out on social media. We need to show Christ's love, while at the same time stand up for Biblical truth.

 
And it all starts with Devotion to Prayer.
