Candy Land has this movement where you go two steps forward only to have to take one step back. Just when you think you have made some progress you find yourself sliding back down only to have to climb up again.
Our faith journey can be very similar. We find that we move forward one day, only to go backwards the next, and I think that is because our faith impacts all of our life. We might get one aspect, like being kind to one another in our work life down, but haven’t translated it into all areas of our life (or to the people we find it super difficult to be kind to). And so we slid backwards.
Be in prayer today for how the faithful call to discipleship can infuse all areas of your life.
Prayer: God help me to see more clearly, help me to grow in the servant ministry of Christ today. Amen.
