All Kinds Of Right

By April 22, 2016 No Comments

Let’s be honest, the mundane is hard.

Doing something day in and day out because it’s the right thing to do can wear a person out – like teaching our children their manners, or investing into our marriages, or purposing to deepen our faith, or being responsible with our bills… and our homes… and our health… and our relationships… and our church commitments. I mean, good grief, these so-called “right things” often feel like all kinds of wrong.

But Jesus, in His ever-so-loving-way, swoops down to gently remind us that these “right things” are not about “right now.” They’re about how well we want to finish. They’re about endurance and longevity. They’re about discipline and dedication. They’re about a deep desire to not only finish well, but to finish strong.

When we take our eyes off the right now, the moments of exhaustion, frustration, confusion and discouragement, and focus on the longevity, we can zoom out and see the bigger picture. And when we see the bigger picture, that’s when He reminds us that this race we’re running is worthwhile and good because it’s leading us home.

And that, my friends, is all kinds of right.
