Lazaroo – Saturday, July 28, 2012

Jul 28, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with razor-sharpened focus:

“Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good.”
(3 John 1:11)

I needed to hear this, Jesus.

There’s too much pride in me.
I don’t like to imitate anybody.

I long to be unique
do things nobody else has done.

But this isn’t a suggestion, is it?

It’s a command.
You’re telling me:

Imitate what is good!

Is this why You put so much good right under my nose so I can’t miss it?

as an example for me to follow?
a template I can use to get me started?
the launching pad I need to propel me upward?

Often that’s the hardest thing of all, isn’t it:

Liftoff.

Once I’m airborne it’s a lot easier to check out the lay of the land from way up there

to branch out by faith and discover

how to put my one-of-a-kind spin on it.
