What if you lived in a place where no one cared what you wore- they didn’t even see it. You just wore what was comfortable. It could be the same thing day after day and it wouldn’t matter. You were clothed. And they just saw YOU.
What if you lived in a place where folks came over to each other’s homes just for the sake of visiting or helping or loving. It didn’t matter if you served the richest of meals or crackers and water. Those were just additions to a visit. Not the purpose.
What if you lived in a place where your home was simply a shelter. A place to rest your head, enjoy company, and to sleep soundly. But how it looked was never an issue. It was simply your dwelling place.
What if you lived in a place where no one compared. No one envied. Each was working for the good of the others.
What if you lived in a place where the center of your life was truly the Gospel. Without all of the other things distracting you, and daily life consisted of being steeped in God’s Word and then living it out.
Why do we spend so much time on the details? Why do we add the Gospel to our lives instead of living our lives from the Gospel?
These are all things I think about this morning, as I gaze out into the day and realize, time is ticking. Life is short. Why waste it?
The foggy clouds of the morning rain are giving way to a hazy sunshine. And it is just like me when I see the distractions begin to fade and His glory come into light.
My prayer is that all of the distractions would be gone so we can clearly see the purpose of our lives.
