The Family Hike

00:00

Description

Always make choices that line up with the Bible's principles. It's a much better route.

A family hike, what a great idea! Or, so I thought. 

One summer, at family camp, some exercise-loving friends suggested our family join theirs for a moderate hike. I pictured a path with a gentle winding, upward slope. Not so, it was more like scaling a cliff. Climbing up that mountain against the force of gravity was really hard, but coming down was a completely different experience. I could actually talk and enjoy the scenery. Working with gravity made the journey so much better.

Life is a little like that hike. When I make choices that don’t line up with the Bible, it’s like working against gravity. In the same way when I make choices that line up with the Bible’s principles, I am working with God’s power and that’s definitely the better route.
