“Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. ‘Make level paths for your feet,’ so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.” -Hebrews 12:12-15
Some of you might remember my encounter with a not-so-level path. My scars aren’t so obvious now, and that beautiful bike I used was stolen four months ago, so I have very little to remind me of the incident nowadays.
But every time I think of going back, I remember that hole. I remember I’ll drive more carefully. I hope someone will have filled it in.
Today is your chance to level the paths. You can remove the bitter roots. If you don’t take advantage of it, people will be disabled–or at least scarred. The bitter roots will trip them up.
By the grace of God, you can exhibit holiness today. Jesus is the strength for your feeble arms and weak knees, and He gives you strength to act.
