The Clock

Pin It
Every time I enter my living room, I see the large chiming clock that has been beside the fireplace for over 20 years.  It is a wind-up clock and faithfully tolled its time on the hour and half hour. It now shows the time of 11:06. For whatever reason, and it is a mystery to me, it has stopped running.

Now, twice a day, this clock has the correct time. But for the majority of the time... it is wrong, very wrong. But, it has been right for so long, can I make an exception for it now?

Do we hold onto things just because it is the way we always have done it? And we are right some of the time, or do we examine the reasons and then decide if it is according to God's Word and that we should walk in it? Even if it means correcting something in our lives? (like getting the clock repaired and setting it to the correct time)  It takes a very brave heart to do the right thing. It may hurt, it may change your view of others, and it may change other's view of you.

My thought for today, Be right with God.
