Living a life of purity in this world is like walking through a muddy parking lot. The way you walk through it will depend on where you are going.
Where are you headed?
If you are heading to a mud volleyball tournament, then walking through mud is no big deal. You don't freak out about a splatter of mud getting on your shirt or inside your shoes or even on your face. Why bother, you are going to be covered in mud soon enough anyway! You might even start kicking it up and flinging it on others.
However, if you were walking across that same muddy parking lot on the way to a wedding, you would be more careful. If it was your wedding, you might even ask someone to carry you. You wold guide others along the more solid areas and away from the sloppy ones. You would be careful to direct your kids in the same path.
So, where are you headed? We are headed towards a wedding. We are the bride and we want to be presented to our Groom as spotless. While walking along life's path, there is no need to join in the mudslinging or indulging in the "ease" of just letting the mud get on you. There are ways to protect your purity. Let us walk together to help each other.
Our goal is to help guide others through the mud and slop. We are available for speaking, mentoring and other events. Contact us for more information.
