What specific COMFORT appeals to you the most?
I have a few favourites like comfy clothes which consist of sweatpants and a Bruins t-shirt, a piece of Shari’s apple pie or lying down on the sofa watching TV gives a level of comfort too.
Many things offer a level of COMFORT in life. Many people CHASE the CARROT of COMFORT. Why do we CHASE COMFORT? Is that something people do? It sure is, because most of us dislike pain, trials and heartache, we would trade it all in for a comfy life.
Samuel Rutherford reminds us of the futility of CHASING COMFORT. ‘Of all created comforts, God is the leader; you are the borrower, not the owner.’
COMFORT in this life is something we never own; we only borrow. CHASING the COMFORT of things often dulls our FAITH, which jeopardizes our eternal future.
I hope you’ll join me this Sunday as we conclude our CHASING CARROTS SERIES by answering some tough questions on COMFORT.
