I know full well that the hwy between home and church is bumpy; yet, Sunday after Sunday I choose to bring an open-lid coffee mug in the car with me. Inevitably, the trip ends with spilled coffee on my Sunday best.
I know the end result.
Yet I choose to do the same thing over and over and over and over. Week after week. Sunday after Sunday.
Because I’m a hardheaded human.
Because I am human.
And well, oftentimes humans just do dumb things.
We know the consequences. We know that the end result could be detrimental to our shirt or far worse; yet, we carry the coffee [and our sin] all lackadaisical like we don’t have a care [or a prayer] in the world.
We’ve got to do better.
We’ve got to decide wholeheartedly that we – for lack of a better word – are not gonna act like a dummy.
Knowing the right choice to make is easy; making the right choice is so much harder. The truth of the matter is that the only foreseeable way to be successful on this road called life is with God being at the center of all we do.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
