Isn’t it funny how we can get comfortable? When life around us begins to get boring purely because we’re doing the same things we’ve always done. Yet when we get thrown out into the deep end, we get all stressed out and worried over life that we completely lose focus.
I think sometimes we get ourselves into a nice little box, where we get comefortable. Those four sides of the box are within reach at any point in time and we’ll protect it if anything tries to disturb that peace of mind.
I observed our cat today. Every now and then he’ll find a strange place to curl up and sleep. He has this habbit of curling up inside Mum’s jigsaw boxes. For those that don’t know, he is a rather large cat and most of the time is far to big for the box. But he will always try – often breaking the box at the seams. I think this happens to us. Sometimes we get too big for the box we are in, but instead of getting a new box, we force ourselves to get comfortable in the existing box until eventually it breaks.
Jesus came to break down boxes. He came so that we might live. So don’t wrap yourself up in a box that doesn’t fit. Don’t limit yourself or your life. Stretch out. Don’t get comfortable.
