Calling Whole Hearts
How long will you go limping with two different opinions? 1Kings 18:20-40 Other translations use falter or waver but neither provides the imagery like the word limping. The word is used again when the author describes the prophets of Baal limping around the altar as they call out his name. The people of Israel wanted to have it both ways; a kind of “eat my cake and have it too” theology. God wasn’t having it. Everyday, we have to wholeheartedly make up our minds as to who we will serve, lest we find our selves limping; lacking in strength, structure and without recourse, working harder than we really have to.
Happy are they who trust in the Lord, they do not resort to evil spirits or turn to false gods. Psalm 40
