5-Star Comfort

There’s no doubt we all love comfort.

Why else would our car seats have sixteen seating positions? To make it easier, our car can remember our favorite one. Just a tap on Memory 1 or Memory 2, and everything resets to our optimum setting, perfect for us and us alone.

Heaven forbid we must drive a different car and figure out our best and most comfortable seating position all over again.

It’s easy to treat life like that. We’ve got our job adjusted, our weekends planned, and we can see retirement on our horizon. We kick up our feet and say, “Ah, my barns are full. Why do I need to go the extra mile? I’ll just get tired. I’m comfortable. Let me be.”

Yet the Word of God says differently in Proverbs 6:6-8.

“Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.”

This is our summer. The world needs to hear about Jesus. Our Church begs for our attention. Missionaries on the field plead for our support. Our full barns are only beneficial when we step past what’s comfortable and find a new driver’s seat, one that is perhaps less comfortable, but that will take us deeper into the revealed will of God.

Spend enough time with Christ, and soon, he will become the comfort we crave.

Excerpt of the Day

When the death of trust scars our hearts, we must find even greater kindness to heal the wound.
