From the Pastor - November 13, 2016

Dear Friends,

Destruction and regret often comes to us one degree at a time. We make the big choices with the best intent and then each of our little choices seems to undermine the larger goal.

We decide we are going to eat healthier. Then we decide one little Snickers bar won't hurt anything. Then another. Since we haven't been perfect today, pizza for lunch really would be quicker than making that healthy meal from scratch.  Who has that kind of time anyway, right? Driving home you remember its Uncle Fluffy's birthday tonight and everyone is meeting at the restaurant to celebrate, and you don't want to be "that guy" ordering a kale burger and sipping a water bringing everyone down. Besides no one has ever died from one bacon double cheese burger with fries, a Coke and a big piece of birthday cake.  Maybe you can do better tomorrow.

The same kind of scenario can play regarding personal finances, moral purity, building better relationships, getting exercise or paying better attention to your walk with Jesus.

Keep making the right choices and watch God move!

In God's Grip,
Pastor Mark
