The One Where We Yelled “Fire” In a Crowded Parking Lot

Lately, YHC is always looking for an open spot on the Q sheet in order to facilitate #acceleration. However, finding a place to lead can be a daunting task when BooBoo, Postal & Rook have filled about every open spot through 2021. Yet, F3Detention had a need for a QIC and YHC pounced.  14 pax were introduced to a few new exercises  this morning and they rocked everything thrown their way – as they always do. Great work, men!

Short Lived Joy – from www.everymanministries.com

“He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.” – Hebrews 11:26 NIV

Stuart Briscoe, host of the Telling the Truth Christian radio program comments, “When God’s commands seem onerous, men often cast them aside and experience a sense of freedom as they do what they want rather than what God wills.  But such joy is short-lived as the negative consequences to health and well-being become apparent.”

Every honest man knows the struggle and pain of selective obedience. On more than one occasion, King Saul of the Old Testament could not resist his impulses to mess with God’s clear instruction.  He is a timeless poster child for every man arrogant enough to turn his back on God’s revealed will.

This is how it played out in Scripture, condensed into a nut shell.

God told Saul in no uncertain terms to kill all the Amalekites and totally destroy everything – men, women, children, and animals for what they did to Israel when they came up out of Egypt. When Samuel approached Saul, Saul said “The Lord bless you! I have carried out the LORD’S instructions.” But Samuel said to Saul “What then is this bleating of sheep in my ears” What is this lowing of cattle that I hear?…You have rejected the word of the Lord.”  Saul deceived himself into believing he was okay when the stark reality was that he had a king and Old McDonald’s farm in his possession! God’s command was clear but Saul obeyed selectively, and his arrogance cost him. Again, the ugly mole poked his head up and deceived Saul and Saul took the bait hook, line, and sinker.  It’s time for us to consider what bait will we succumb to? What is God’s revealed will in our lives? Saul certainly was living with some short-term joy.

Father, you have nothing but my best in mind. Help me consider the consequences of short-term joy.
