Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with no-holds-barred surrender:
“So the Israelites did everything the LORD commanded Moses…”
I’m the king of doing “most things” You command me to do, Jesus…
but not everything.
That’s not good, is it?
My problem is, “Everything” is a lot.
“Everything” leaves no wiggle room
no opportunity to pick and choose
no grading on the curve.
When I think about it, though…
why wouldn’t I do everything You ask of me?
You have my best interests at heart
You know me better than I know myself
You see the future I can’t see.
You would never ask me to do anything
that wasn’t good for me.
It’s just that I don’t want to do some of the things You ask me to do
Basically…because I’m selfish, immature, lazy and blind.
Maybe I should take another look at doing everything You tell me to do.
