Five Minute Friday: Depend

It’s Friday.  Another week when I’ve been tempted to focus on what’s going wrong and overlook a lot of what’s going right.  I choose to be grateful for blessings.  There are many.

Linking up again with Kate Motaung and the FMF Friday gang.

Five minutes of free write on the prompt: depend

**********************

When Pete’s teaching about faith, he often likes to use the illustration of the chair.

Do you have faith that this chair will hold you?

How do you demonstrate that faith?

By sitting in it.

It really doesn’t matter how much faith you have. What matters is what you’re placing your faith in.

Is the object of your faith up to the task?

Too many times we depend on chairs that fail us, that crack under our weight.

We depend on a bank account, a relationship, a position or a reputation, without realizing that those things can’t hold the weight of our expectations. They will fail.

The object of our faith needs to be infallible. Rock solid. Able to handle the job.

It’s critical not to choose inferior chairs.

    That is such a good illustration. It can be easy to worry that I don’t have enough faith sometimes so I love the reminder that it is not about how much faith we have but where we are placing it. Glad to be your FMF neighbour- hope you have a great day!
