Lazaroo – Friday, January 7, 2011

Jan 07, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with heavenly wisdom:

“I was…extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers.”
(Galatians 1:14)

Well, I can see this both ways, Jesus.

On the one hand, traditions can be blinding

they can hold me back
tempt me to quit thinking
rob me of a fresh outlook
tie me to a past that no longer exists.

On the other hand, traditions provide stability

over time, become precious to me
give me the warm comfort of familiarity
ground me in truths that have been

tried
tested
proven.

In this change-a-minute world

traditions give me a handful of things I know I can count on.

Perhaps it’s not “traditions” I have to worry about.

Perhaps it’s when I fall into Saul’s trap of becoming
“extremely zealous” for traditions.

Or, for that matter…

extremely zealous against traditions.

Wouldn’t I be far better off

to just follow You?
