You made it. There it is…the ocean, the beach, vacation!!! Half the fun of vacation is the anticipation of it. You grab your bag, cooler, umbrella, towels, chair and the trek begins to sit right in front of those delightful waves with a book you have been waiting all year to read. It looks like a mile away, but you will make it!
Your sandal clad feet it the sand and…….ouch! That beautiful sand has become a conduit. How could this gorgeous sand be so miserable? The white sand that we were walking on last year was cool and comfortable. But this is not the same sand….Deception. There are times when something beautiful can really be harmful and disturbing. Let’s not forget the garden. And let’s not forget there were two trees there..
Even something that we think is really good can take us away from the beauty of the Father. We get busy with those “good” things and we miss our time with Him. Don’t be deceived into thinking that what you do brings you closer to God or that it makes Him love you more. Your works don’t make Him love you more or less.
Been there, done that….
So next time we are near the beach, I will most certainly check out the temperature of the sand before we venture forward!!
