The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 68
“Eyes On the Road”
As He passed by, He saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting in the tax booth, and He *said to him, “Follow Me!” And he got up and followed Him. And it *happened that He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners were dining with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many of them, and they were following Him. Mark 2:14-15
When we know “who” we are serving and “where” we are going, we can share the “why” we are living. When we’re living in our “why” we don’t have to live in the world of “what if?”. Jesus looked at Levi and said, “Follow Me”. Where? Jesus could answer that question. Why? Jesus could answer that question too because Jesus knew “Who” He was serving. It’s that confidence that comes from that kind of commitment that will keep us from spending our time on the side of the road asking “What if” questions. Knowing our who, where and why will not only keep us on the road but will empower us to bring others with us. There’s freedom in that kind of faith focus and there is fear without it.
