On Comfort

I’ve noticed recently what incredibly comfort I have found in my morning bible study.  It’s become a time that makes me feel safe.  It makes me feel whole and close to God.  Taking comfort in God is exactly what we’re meant to do all of our lives.

But I’ve also come to be wary of comfort … because it’s easy for personal comfort to become an idol.

Take your comfort in God … but don’t let your comfort become your god.

I began writing that post about 3 months ago … but something told me to hold on posting it.  Since then, I’ve sold my comfortable house and bought another one that is a bit more of a project … because I felt that God was calling us to do so.  So at least in one instance, I’ve been able to practice what I’ve preached. 😉
