Stay Close (Ted Knight)

My Lady and I were in a mall on Tuesday, April 1st. As we walked along there was a man with a little boy who seemed about three years of age.

The father said to him, “Do you want to go home and stay with Mommy and Daddy?” The little boy said, “Yes!” The father then told his son, “You must stay close to Mommy and Daddy because there might be someone else who would want to take you home with them.”

The little boy walked over quietly and took his mother’s hand and we could tell that he was going to stay close.

We need so very much to stay close to Jesus, don’t we? There is someone, Satan, who wants to take us with him and the best defense to that is to stay close to our Lord through study, prayer, meditation, and constant faithful Christian living.

James tells us to ‘resist the devil’ and that requires staying close to Jesus. We are warned over and over to be careful about our walk of life because there is the danger of our being attacked by Satan.

Be careful! Watch! Pray! Study! Worship! Praise! And stay close to Jesus.
