Our daily lives re­veal much about us to the world


Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

In that same hour said Je­sus to the mul­ti­tudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take Me? I sat daily with you, teach­ing in the tem­ple, and you laid no hold on Me. (Matthew Ch.26 verse 55).

It is in­ter­est­ing to note that on the very night of Je­sus’ be­trayal and ar­rest that Ju­das and as­so­ci­ates knew ex­actly where to find Je­sus.

Then cometh Je­sus with them unto a place called Geth­se­mane, and saith unto the dis­ci­ples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yon­der. (Ch. 26 verse 36).

Our daily life styles and pat­terns tells the world a lot about us and our habits.

In a given week, our fam­ily, friends and neigh­bors get to know our habits and cus­toms, and where we nor­mally are on cer­tain days. It may be the daily rou­tine of get­ting up and go­ing to a fa­vorite place for break­fast, go­ing to work, lunch at a fa­vorite place, weekly shop­ping, or rou­tine vis­its to the hair­dresser. We are crea­tures of habit and cus­tom. And we can usu­ally be found in a fa­vorite place with fa­vorite friends.

Now, fast for­ward a few days: “Would any­one know where to find you this com­ing Sun­day morn­ing?”

And He cometh unto the dis­ci­ples and find­eth them asleep, and saith to Peter, What, could ye not watch with Me one hour? (v40).
