The thief climbs in through the fence instead of walking through the gate
The thief robs present joy by reminding us we are frauds
The thief robs from the now with the not yet and robs from the enough with the not enough
Prayer for when the thief is speaking: This is enough. You are enough. I am enough.
May my words and actions more and more be congruent with the ruth (heart of Christ and my deepest calling)
Three possible sacrifices of following our deepest calling: Misunderstanding, shame, loneliness
Three important questions in pursuing our deepest calling: Is it true? Are my words or actions doing harm as far as I can tell? Are my words and actions motivated by love as best as I can discern?
May we be undone by the love of Christ and for the sake of those whose voices have been silenced
