The scripture for today, October 14 (10/14), is John 10:14 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
How amazing that Jesus is willing to follow you when you do not follow him, and bring you back to his protective fold. He died while doing just that.
Yet we continue to leave him and his instructions that would keep us safe, and we wander into thistles, near cliffs, down into pits. This requires more work for Jesus. Yet we do it anyway. Catch me if you can! We may laugh, but he weeps because he knows the danger we are headed for.
How much grief do you give your spiritual Father, your spiritual Big Brother, your spiritual family? If they are not laughing over what you’re doing, perhaps you should not be either.
Do you say, “It’s no one else’s business what I do in private”? But when those private sins lead you into problems, it breaks the hearts of your loved ones here on earth. It breaks the heart of Jesus, who went through a torturous death to bring you out of those problems.
God, forgive me when I wander from You.
