Are you ready for our next acronym? 

Okay, here we go.

This principle comes from a few different verses, and though it's only two simple words; be intentional, it's a great reminder to be purposeful about everything you do.
 The other verses are:
Colossians 3:23 
        And whatever you do, do it heartily, as working for the Lord and not for men.

Hebrews 12:1-2
        Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which easily ensnares us, and let us run the race with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

You are probably still wondering what circumspectly even means. The definition says: thinking carefully about possible risks before doing or saying something.
Do we think carefully before doing or saying something? Everything we do effects the people around us.  If we coast along in our Christian walk, not doing anything particularly "bad" but not making a point to live for God, we are wasting the time and opportunities God has given us.

In conclusion:

Redeem the time
Work, as for the Lord
Run the race with endurance

= Be Intentional


  1. This was a slap in the face I really needed to receive. Thank you very much for the convicting post!

  2. Another great post! I always feel nervous about sharing my faith with others and I'm sure I don't do it as often as I could or should. I try to pray about that and ask God for very distinct, even obvious opportunities to witness to others and the confidence to do it. I also ask him to help me find how he wants me to use my talents to glorify him.


We love hearing comments and remarks, so leave us a note!
