  • The Sailboat Principle
    Friday, June 10, 2022
    The first time my father and I tried sailing a sailboat, the instructor gave us directions. He said that we couldn't keep the sail in just one position; we'd have to adjust it continuously. We didn't so we ended up in the water with a turned-over sailboat. When sailing, even if you are only 5 degrees to the right or left, you will be soon completely off course and eventually totally lost. So, it is in life and with the Lord. The Bible says to examine yourself to see if you are in the faith. You can't just commit your life to the Lord yet never check to see if your life and your heart are still on course. It's easy to go off a few degrees to the right or left. Are you off a few degrees from prayer, from the Word, from the joy of the Lord, or from your first love in God? Then it's time to adjust and correct your course. Renew your love and your devotion to Him every day. Continually refocus and concentrate your journey on Him. Then you'll stay the course and not become lost or shipwrecked.
    From Message #932 - Fat on the Bones
    Today's Mission
    Check your bearings today. Are you on course or off course. Adjust whatever needs to be adjusted and sail ahead.
