Have You Lost Your Mind?
Full Life Reflections: October 1st
“When the whole world is running towards a cliff, he who is running in the opposite direction appears to have lost his mind.”-C. S. Lewis
My sister-in-law recently shared wise words from a mentor friend; the mentor explained that living like a Christian in these times will feel like we’re doing the complete opposite of our society.
Those who are following Christ will always be running in the opposite direction of the world. It can be strange at times. We may look around and question, “Is this the right way?”. But it is through God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit that we are guided to continue moving forward in truth.
Some days we run the race alone, and other days we are surrounded by support with the wind at our backs. No matter our circumstances, may we continue to run with endurance and flee from worldly passions that point away from God.
Where does God have you running? How are you living counter to the culture?

1 thought on “Have You Lost Your Mind?”
“Vanity of vanities, and all is vanity (Eccles. 1:2), except to love God, and to serve Him only. This is the highest wisdom, by contempt of the world to press forward towards heavenly kingdoms.”
Often remember that proverb: “the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor is the ear filled with hearing.” Eccles 1:8
“Study, therefore, to withdraw thy heart from the love of visible things and to turn thyself to things invisible.” My Imitation of Christ.
I’d say these contain many words that comply with these thoughts; as well the same photo that points out a world running toward the precipice!
