See the mountain in the distance? It would be tempting to try to find a short-cut past the valley. The goal is ahead, but it’s the process that makes the ambition worth the distance. Oswald Chambers said, “Temptation is a suggested short-cut to the realization of the highest at which I aim – not towards what I understand as evil, but towards what I understand as good.” Temptation isn’t the bad things we want to do, it’s taking the short-cut to the good things. What might require some work to avoid short-cuts in your walk with the Lord?
