Thought For Today: “Complacency Prevents God’s Call”
Complacency prevents us from following the call of God upon our lives.
One spring night a flock of geese flew over a farm where a group of tame ducks floated in the pond. When these ducks heard the call of the geese it was like an arrow struck deep within them and they began to flap their wings. The only problem is that they never left the water.
In their hearts the matter was settled, the corn of the barnyard was more tempting than the call of the wild. Their desire to fly with the geese made them uncomfortable because of their complacency.
Joshua addressed the Israelites prior to his death dealing with the people’s potential for compromise, and then his stance not to, which would lead Joshua into being Israel’s leader into the Promised Land.
“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:14-15)
