Daily Thought: Mutually Opposed Desires

“I want two things that are mutually opposed—I want to live a nice little life, and I want to play an important role in God’s kingdom.  And it’s in those times that I am trying to live a nice little life that I make decisions and choices that cause me in small and subtle ways to live outside of Jesus.  The Shepherd is headed one direction, and I am headed another.  Not to some flagrant sin—that’s too easy to recognize.  Instead, I’m simply wandering off looking for the pasture I deem best.” ~ John Eldredge, Walking with God, pp. 89-90
