scars

Tuesday June 21st, Galatians 5: 13 It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don't use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows.  For a young child, learning to ride a bike is an exhilarating sense of freedom.  One of the essentials for learning to ride a bike is balance.  You maintain that balance by looking ahead, where you are going.  The minute you look down, where you are at, or focus on yourself instead of the ride, you lose your balance and fall.  I have the scars, both on my knees and on my ego, to prove it.  Our exhilarating freedom in Christ also requires balance, and that balance comes from looking ahead to where Christ is leading us.  The minute we look down, focus on our situation, or our needs, or our wants, or our desires, or our pity party, or our, our, our, we lose our balance and fall.  And I also have the scars to prove that.
