“The Intention Of Training” By Kirk Hunt
They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.
2 Peter 2:14 NKJV
Training requires a target. High skills and knowledge always requires focus on a specific and deliberate outcome. What is your intention?
Peter and Paul both faced men and women who trained their minds and bodies for unrighteous, sinful outcomes. As if doing the wrong thing was easy enough, those souls focused their efforts on the very outcomes God’s people try to avoid. These “cursed children” want sin and wrongdoing to be expanded in the world.
History is full of examples of men and women who sought the worst in themselves and others. Millions have suffered, and will suffer in the future, because of the dark and malicious goals of a determined few. Thankfully, the opposite is also true. A few, determined souls can bless and benefit this generation and next.
Whose kingdom do you want to build? Do you seek to build the Kingdom of God, here and now? If so, you can be a “blessed child” to everyone around you and to generations to come.
Consider what you are training your mind, heart and body to do. The intention of your purpose exposes who you really are. It is my prayer that we will see that you are a child of Father-God.
Think: The intention of my training is building God’s Kingdom.
Pray: “Lord, I train diligently so I can build your Kingdom.”
