Uncommen: The Space Between Us

Day 5 of 5 • This day’s reading

Devotional

Perfect Space

In the last four days, we've considered that we often place too much space between each other. Today, we'll analyze what perfect spacing looks like.
 

If you are not familiar with the story of Ruth, I would suggest you read it soon. It's a beautiful story.
 

These are the statements Ruth makes when talking to Naomi:

  • Do not urge me to leave you
  • For where you go I will go
  • Your people shall be my people…
  • And your God my God
  • Where you die, I will die

When we consider these statements and our perfect Savior, these are the kind of things we should say to Him. It's a beautiful relationship of Savior to a servant. An ideal amount of space.
 

Your spacing with Jesus can be directly impacted by how you treat your spouse, family, or church. When you love them like Jesus Christ, the spacing will be perfect, and glory will be brought to God.
 

Uncommen Questions:

On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 is too close / 10 is too far apart) where are the following:

  • Wife
  • Family
  • Community
  • Church
  • Jesus

What can you do to adjust the spacing to be just where God wants it?

 

Uncommen Challenge:

I challenge you to examine the spacing in your life. We all have spaces that need to be adjusted, but we tend to modify them out of our wants and not God's desires. Pray that God opens your eyes to where He wants you to be and then go.
