For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John‬ ‭8‬:‭44‬ NLT)

Last night, my sons played football against a neighboring town whose mascot is the Red Devils. It has always mystified me as to how a town down here in the Bible Belt of the South would choose such a negative character to represent their community! My wife and I agreed that it was probably used to intimidate and strike fear in the hearts of their competitive rivals.

The problem is that we become what we tend to identity with. This includes clubs, groups, and even political affiliations. As the old saying goes, “If you lay down with dogs, you’ll wake up with fleas.” This is very true, especially spiritually. As Christ Life ambassadors, we must be careful that we are influencing, not being influenced.

As you go about your weekend, gauge what makes you more or less passionate for God. To me, the haunts of Halloween are mild compared to the horrors of the daily doors we leave upon for dark influences. Live to be true children of your Heavenly Father! You are loved today!
