Enticing Cookie Jar

by PamFord Davis  
2/16/2012 / Devotionals

The enticing cookie-jar is just out of reach of helpless little hands. Toddler's tummy grumbles as his eyes scan the room to see if his parents are peeking. The coast is clear so he springs into action.

"If I get up on the counter, I can eat cookies"

The tyke pulls over a chair and begins his Mt. Everest climb, first up onto daddy's chair then up on top of the cluttered kitchen counter. He focuses on his find with his tongue hanging out as he anticipates temptation's rewards.

Temptation is about to spring its trap. He reaches for the "Sesame Street Cookie Monster" cookie jar but cannot quite grasp it in greedy little hands. Bumbling Billy loses his balance, bounces off the counter and collapses on cushioned carpet. He will try again another day.

I reach for Christian maturity. "Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God's heavenly call in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14 HCS)."

"Can I get an Amen?"
