Infatuated With the Ideal

Apr 24, 2009

Ya’ll already know I run almost every morning, sometime around 7 AM and usually between 3 and 6 miles. But you probably don’t know that many times I listen to Christian talk radio, including names like Allister Begg, Chuck Swindoll, Family Life Today, and Focus on the Family. Now, I haven’t listened to Focus in a looooooooooooong time. But yesterday, for reasons I can’t begin to guess, I tuned in for the last 1o minutes.

Huh. Ever feel like Truth is stalking you?

Check out a two-part FOTF broadcast of a Beth Moore message titled “Embracing God’s View of Your Marriage.”

I’m not going to outline it for you. You’re going to have to listen to it for yourself. But the title of this post should give you at least a hint. Sometimes we miss the GOOD because we’re hung up the IDEAL. The problem is one is real and the other is not.

Have you every been infatuated with an illusion to the exclusion of the real right in front of you?
