Trail Mix

I love trail mix; a mixture of dried fruit, nuts and sometimes seeds. I usually make my own, but when I buy it from the store, I never know what I’ll get. I find myself picking out the pieces of dried pineapple, or my favorite nuts. And when I get to the end of the bag, all that’s left are the pieces I don’t really care for.

Isn’t this the way some people treat Christianity? They will go to church on Sunday but be too busy during the week for a Bible study. Or, they will treat their best friend with their undivided attention, but neglect helping a neighbor in need.

This breaks God’s heart. He wants all of us; our undivided attention, every day.

Quit picking out the hard parts of being a Christian and doing only what comes easy.

You can’t ride the fence. Don’t get caught between clear biblical teaching and what culture pressures you to believe. To reject ‘some’ of the Bible (God’s authority) is to reject all of it.

James 2: 10 – “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.”
