Surely he doesn’t have to!

Foots reflection in the water

 

Sometimes I come across people who seem to have their act together to such an extent that I imagine that they don’t have to do the basics any more. They don’t need to make daily choices that are difficult. They’ve arrived. These people could walk on water if that’s what was needed.

 
I was reminded this morning that even these water walkers are not free from making daily choices if they are to stay on track. The choices that were brought to my attention were:
 
  • When life gets really busy and the needs of others are crowding in on me then a deliberate choice to find a place of solitude needs to be made.
  • When seemingly legitimate distractions demand my attention I need to intentionally remain true to my purpose or calling.
  • When I have a big task ahead of me, my best tactic is to chose a team to help me.
 
These reminders were found in a record of a life lived two centuries ago. These records refer to what Jesus had to pay attention to.Therefore it would be foolish on my part to ignore his example.
