Which Way?

I want my life to be defined by the God that I point people toward, not merely by the enemies that I stand against.
===================================
Scripture

Jeremiah 31:6
“For there shall be a day when watchmen will call in the hill country of Ephraim: ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.'”
Observation
The job of a watchman is to warn of danger–so why would the watchman be calling the city to go up to Zion?
The people needed the watchman to warn them of danger–but equally important was the question of where they were being called ‘toward’. It was not enough that they defend against attack–they needed to continue drawing closer to God.
Application
It’s easy to see danger in the world, and sometimes there’s even a sense of gratification to take a stand against issues and attacks. But the deeper question is, what am I calling people ‘toward’? Am I merely taking a stand against what is wrong, or am I pointing people toward the savior?
I want my life to be defined by the God that I point people toward, not merely by the enemies that I stand against.
Prayer
God, thank you for this reminder! Help me to daily point people to you, instead of merely taking a stand against unrighteousness. Help me this week to see the opportunities you give me to point people to you!
