Life Can Be Like A 3-Legged Sack Race 

August 7 & 8, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Amos 3:3Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

     Some of the most fun things people do at a church gathering will include both the children and the adults. One year at a church function I attended, we had an old fashion 3-legged sack race. The rules stated it had to be an adult and a small child together. Well, as you can imagine, it was often hilarious to watch. As I watched I observed several of the teams really struggling with this race. With some, I saw the adult almost pick up the child and run with them. The child sort of dangling in mid-air as this adult was dragging them through the race. With others, the adult almost appeared to become frustrated, waiting for the child to catch up with their tiny steps to every one of the adult’s giant steps. Both groups were having the same problem, (which is what made it funny to begin with.) The problem was that they were unevenly matched. The two could not walk as one because of the difference in size and the difference of abilities between them.

     Some Christians have tried to live their lives this way. Hanging out with unsaved people and then wondering why they always feel so out-of-place. Going into business with a partner of different beliefs might seem like a small thing, but it always causes headaches later as directional decisions for the business come up. Even worse, a Christian marries a lost person hoping to change them. They usually find themselves in years of misery by not waiting on the Lord and finding the right person first as the Bible had said. Can two really walk together as one, if they do not agree? The answer is always, NO!

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

      When choosing for the future, look to the one who holds the future. God knows today what will happen tomorrow, next week, next year, and forever. Do you? If not, (and I know you do not,) why not trust someone who does? Ask for His leading before you walk down a wrong path with the wrong person.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
