Stop Drifting Along and Start Digging In




Proverbs 2:1–9

Shallowness is not attractive. Many are satisfied to skate along, hitting the high spots, seldom deliberately pausing to go, probe, or think deeper.

Unfortunately, there is little in our hurried and hassled age that promotes the importance of depth—even in many churches. Stop and consider how many have turned their worship into entertainment and selected programmes filled with non-stop activities as a substitute for growing, learning, and applying wisdom to their lives. How easy it is to start looking like a herd of cattle in a stampede than God’s flock beside green pastures and still waters.

If you are willing to acknowledge that you have become shallow and superficial—or, if you realise that you are not as deep a person as you would like to be—today is the day to make decisions that can change the course of your life.
