Hey guess what I just learned about you? If you can’t pull me out, you’ll push me deeper in. If you can’t keep me from going to church, you’ll keep me in church so much that I don’t have any time to serve other people and share the Gospel with them. If I set out to serve others, you’ll keep me so busy doing that, I won’t have any time for church.
I can see now that the whole key is balance, and I’ll bet that word chaps your little red butt. If I have faith but no wisdom, I’ll boldly strike out, flailing around, and end up making a mess off things. And if I have total wisdom, but no faith to act on it, what good does that wisdom do me?
I actually owe you an apology, I often accused you of just wanting bad things for me, but you’d actually encourage me to max out on one good thing, in order to ignore all the other good things I need to be focused on. Anything to keep me caught up and run aground, huh? This frenzied mania, this “target-lock”, this desperate obsession is the problem. I should have known something was up when peace and joy left the dang building. I won’t be this easy to fool next time, I promise.
In Jesus name,
P.S. Bite me.
