Make It A Daily Practice
If you are a child of God, make it a daily practice to start off your day in the Word. Before you get to the bad news, read first of the Good News (Bible). The bad news will always be there. In fact, there won’t be a day that goes by without bad news.
If you are like me, I love reading the news on a daily basis. And I have a tendency to grab my smartphone and browse away reading my messages, emails, and see what’s going on in the news or on social media. By the time I realized, I’ve already spent an hour or two doing just that. And there is nothing wrong of being informative. However, bad news and negativity on social media could ruin your day, obviously. That is why I am reminding myself and am encouraging you, if you are a child of God, to first read the Word, then you will have a good perspective of what you may encounter during the day. Begin your day off in the Word.
