Isaiah says for us to “cast up the highway; gather out the stones”.
Cast up the highway? Or modern day terms: “take the high road”.—-choose carefully how you react to situations, how you represent your God.
Gather out the stones? —-if you see something that has the potential of harming a person, physically or spiritually, get it out of the way. Look out for others.
We aren’t living this life just for ourselves. We are here to glorify Jesus. We can do that by showing His love to others.
Live a life that can be followed after.
My children found a deer bedded down outside of our window this morning. When it stood up they realized that it’s foot was hurt.
Immediately I heard, “Mom!! Call Daddy!!! The deer is hurt. He’ll know what to do. Mom, please call Daddy!!!! The deer is hurt!!”
In Psalms the deer is symbolic of the founded Christian. It teaches us to thirst after The Living Water and to be founded in The Lord.
How do you handle the situation when you see “a deer” (another Christian) in need? Do you immediately seek out the wisdom of your “daddy” (Heavenly Father)? Do you realize the urgency of the situation?
Keep seeking Jesus and keep an eye out for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
