When I was a child, my brother and I loved to play with our toy race track. We would sit in amazement and delight while the cars whizzed around the plastic roadway at dangerously high speeds. We each had the control for our own car so could therefore control the speed. Whenever the car was about to round a curve, it was imperative to let up on the acceleration so the car wouldn’t tumble off the track. When this happened, we would carefully pick it back up and put it back on it’s track. Looking back on this, I think of how we Christians can sometimes stumble off the track. We are running a race, no doubt! But if we’re not careful; if we don’t pace ourselves correctly; if we fail to recognize the danger signs, we too can stumble off the right path. Mercifully, we have a patient and loving Father in heaven who will forgive us. If we confess and repent (1 Jn. 1:6-9), God will tenderly pick us up and place us back on track. “He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps” (Psalm 40:2).
