a sticky situation

Cactus-close-up

Word: Live your life in a lazy way and life for you will be like a hike through a cactus patch. Live life rightly though, and you’ll find your path is smooth. (Proverbs 15:19)

Wonder: Taking the easy way out or just trying to keep things comfortable in life often just leads to more pain. The illusion of ease is one of our greatest stumblingblocks. Why do we humans seem so bent on trying to find shortcuts in life rather than just discovering and doing the right thing?

  1. Wow…I sure needed that little inspiration this morning. I’m still struggling with some decisions. At times, I’m not even sure which way is really the “easy” way. I’m just trying to follow my heart.

  2. It is sort of like trying to “get something for nothing”, like a beggar sitting on the street with a cup, waiting for coins. Oh, yes, I realize some people fall upon tough times through no fault of their own, but others are somehow content to do nothing or as little as they can to simply survive. Like the verse says it often times just brings more pain and the easy way is harder than the right way. I’m sure any beggar on the street would agree that it isn’t as easy as they thought it might be. What is “easy” for some might just be harder for others. In my opinion the word is relative to our situation. “Why do we humans seem so bent on trying to find shortcuts in life rather than just discovering and doing the right thing?” For the same reason that we need a savior…we’re flawed. From the time that Adam and Eve ate from the tree and were cast out of the garden, we have been curious creatures who often times make poor decisions. Praise God, we have a savior who will pick us up when we fall and taking His hand is really the easy part.
