Sunday Verses

Quit Doing Things That Aren't Life-Giving
Happy Sunday! We have had quite a few woodpeckers in our yard this year (including this Red-Naped Sapsucker). They are fun and interesting to watch as they peck away in spots that aren't going to help feed them--our flag pole, windows, metal stove pipe. Seeing the bird furiously persist pecking at a dead wood or metal pole is a great picture of what we so often do in our lives. How many times do we continue down or return to paths that we know are not right for us only to eventually feel like we are banging our heads against a brick wall? You know the saying, if you want different results, you have to try different approaches. We need to quit making choices that we know aren't good for us and aren't life-giving. And, I know that it is so hard to not follow familiar paths and patterns and habits, but looking to Jesus and relying on Him makes the hard things possible. Let's quit poking and jabbing at dead activities, actions, words that lead us the wrong way and rather focus on those paths that guide us to the vital life God wants for us.
