Yesterday at a mall/amusement park, we watched some kids trying to go across a zip line obstacle course. There were times they had to swing from landing to landing and walk small lines of beams all the while tethered to a cord above them. As they moved, they had to make sure the cord above them moved as well to go forward.
It reminds me of what a fine line we walk daily.
I know how bad I am…but God is Good.
How dark the world is in which I live…but God is Light.
How I fail so many, many times…but God forgives me.
There are times as we walk the fine line we have to have faith to zip line across to the next landing, nothing below us but air and the ground.
The Way to do that is to make sure we are tethered to the One above us.
