You’ve heard of the missing link? Maybe he or she is looking back at you in the mirror!
It has been my experience that we often have a missing link or disconnect in our Christian lives.
I see this disconnect in discipleship where people are passionate for one cause and blind on a very similar issue.
I see it in our interaction with the world of politics. We blindly go with a party line and lose the ability to think and analyze an issue. We want to be told what to think, do and believe.
I see it in our response to sin.
Sometimes the sins we hate the most, actually have smaller tentacles in our own lives, although in a slightly different form.
– We hate sexual sin, but pay no attention to the need for modesty.
– We decry violence against women and children, but look at pornography on the side.
– We rightly believe unborn children have value yet lose interest in helping people once they have been born.
