Life is full of opportunities to learn.
I recently received an old iPhone from my employer and in trying to “make it work better” I broke it. Twice. Now it is just a paper weight on my desk. Apart from being a humbling experience (the more I try, the worse it gets), this has made me think about my choices in life.
Our choices in life have consequences and it is always a good idea to think about the choices we make. As Jesus said, “For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?” (Luke 14:28)
We need to take a good look in life at how we are living. From the simple to the complicated, we have choices to make. These choices have consequences.
How are we spending our time, what are we giving our time, energy, and resources to?
Make your tower building experiences count. Whether they are a success or a failure, take them to the Cross and surrender them to Jesus.
If we want to grow in the grace of Christ, we must be willing to learn from life’s lessons. The Holy Spirit gently instructs, powerfully convicts, never abandons us, and leads us to righteousness.
