Today’s Reading – 1 Peter
I Peter 2:11 CEB
I have a peculiar habit. When I spend time in prolonged conversation with someone with a specific dialect, I pick it up. I still have phrases and words that I use after living in Texas and Minnesota. I can still revert to broken Russian english after spending time there 20 years ago!
How is that I still have very revealing parts of my life that resemble the places I have lived – even if for but a few short weeks! – but I still struggle to live like a citizen of God’s Kingdom?
That is the hard part for us in this world – this is not our home.
So as hard as it is – STOP picking up bad habits!
You were meant to live a life far greater than the one you are settling for . . .
Your passport should state that you are only visiting –
be sure to declare all the baggage that you have picked up –
I know someone who will willing carry it for you . . .
