Technology enables us to enjoy an increasingly comfortable existence.
Who’d want to go back to the days before indoor plumbing, A/C, and automatic washers? We can be thankful for these things.
But there’s a subtle danger in all this: What happens when doing right isn’t comfortable, convenient—or safe?
Getting out of our comfort zone
Nothing is more incompatible with comfort than the cross. “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me” (Matthew 10:38).
Without this Christ-like toughness in our commitment, we’ll bail out when faithfulness has a sharp edge to it.
Let’s share Paul’s perspective, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Romans 8:18).
