You know what bugs me? Following people. I’d much rather type the address into Maps on my phone and let Siri navigate! Lea and I were out with a big group in multiple vehicles and I wasn’t quite sure where we were going. Traffic was kind of heavy and we momentarily lost sight of the group. “We’re following the guy with the cross,” I said, referencing the decal on the back of the truck.
Following the guy with the cross… I thought about that later. Sometimes we can get so distracted in life, can’t we? There are bills to pay, football games to watch, chores to do. There are a million big and little thing things in this world vying for our attention. And it’s way too easy to start following people. A friend, a coach, a teacher, a loved one, even a preacher. And all those people and all those things can have their space in our life, so long as we are following the guy with the cross.
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
