risks of this world
It is always such a basic-sounding command, to be careful. we shrug that comment off from our mothers and fathers every time we leave the house as children. we laugh at it as teenagers because there's no fun in caution. but here the consequences are too great. if we are not careful with our faith, we will miss out on the coming of the Lord, on the chance to defend Him.
it is so easy to step back from the intensity of what God demands of us just to get lost in the swirling cloud of busy-ness that we're trained to live in. God remind me every day of Your mercy and Your strength that will carry me through my forgetful and troublemaking times. Please bring me faithful people to walk with who will challenge me and recognize Your work in me so I can't walk away or give up!
