In A Rut

Much of our lives are spent repeating the same things day after day. We wake and go to work. We come home and eat dinner. Perhaps we do some chores - laundry, grocery shopping, yard work. We may even have some time for our hobbies: golfing, knitting, reading or even blogging. However, for most of us Monday through Friday has been laid out for us by necessity, so we wait anxiously for the bookends - Saturday and Sunday. The bookends allow us to break out of our rut; or so we believe.

Are your bookends really a break out, or is it just a different rut? Do you ever wonder what we are walking towards?

As physical beings, we must experience time within the natural laws. We move through time in a linear fashion with yesterday a memory we carry while the future hangs in the mist of our plans; never guaranteed. The truth is, we are all walking towards something - but what?

What rut have you chosen to take? If we must walk through this life in one rut or another - wouldn't you rather be on the rut leading to something better? Will your rut lead directly to the grave and eternal death, or will your rut lead upwards to an eternal life?

"Then they also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?' Then he will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.' And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." Matthew 25:44-46 RSV
