Caught Between Crowns

17th November

I didn’t realize it, but I was making a choice.

So are you.

We wake up in the morning and often follow through the daily necessities without much intention. Clocking in on time. Running by the post office. Submitting the paper with thirty seconds to spare. Being both active and reactive to what presents itself before us during our routine. Never realizing that even in the commonality, we are choosing which crown we want to serve.

Most of us have never lived in a monarchy, and as a result we tend to westernize a very eastern methodology of kingdom-mindedness in our culture. However, throughout the entire Bible the correlation is always related to God and the church.

I was torturing myself on the treadmill at the gym the other day when I noticed a sign on the wall that read, “Life is not about finding yourself.

You think so, so at that last moment you swerve to catch it, almost flipping your car and causing a thirteen-car pile up behind you.
But no worries, you got your road. Or so you think.

Wait! Where’s that one tree shaped like a windmill? Isn’t this road supposed to turn left? A stifled panic mixes with irritation as you begin to realize the mistake. Great. Now you’re stuck and going the wrong way with no hope for a turn about for another 31.5 miles.

Oops. Your snap decision has landed you in a frustrating situation with little hope of instant recovery. Your actions … Read More »
