Beautiful Day

Looking forth, looking back

When God calls us out into a new dimention, He doesn't always tells us everything. Sometimes we understand why, sometimes we don't. Sometimes we can see the whole picture, sometimes we can only see a glimpse.
But the attitute and actions that follow that calling can vary greatly, and so are the results.
When the angel told Lot and his family to leave, (Gen19), he just said, run for your life, and do not look back. Lot and his family tried to nag and tarry, and out of the Lord's mercy, the angel just took them by their hands and urged them out. But Lot's wife looked back, and immediately she became a pillar of salt.
Moving is always a hassle. It's always harder to look into the future than it is to look what's behind: we have spent so much time and energy to settle down and building up, how can we just leave everything behind? and once we start to look behind, then one thing after another start to squeence and follow in: the memories, old glory and comfort, cares and belongings.... the emotions!.... and....we're stuck!
Jesus tells us to live a life like travelors. But we like to settle down and accumulate our comfort.
But one thing I'm sure: Canaan Land is always better than the desert, and it's definately worth the effort of leaving Egypt. It's the attitude and actions that makes up the difference between 11 days and forty years. What a lesson!
