We, followers of Jesus, are often a confused bunch.  

Following is a great quote from one of my favorite speakers and authors, Erwin McManus, from his new book, Wide Awake.

We have confused comfort with peace, belief with faith, safety with wisdom, wealth with blessing, and existence with life.

Lord, may you help me to follow Jesus and to not confuse a life with Jesus with the one the world and the Church in the United States often propagates.  Amen.

    We need comfort,that we obtain thru FAITH,provided we have the wisdom to follow CHRIST!
