“No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier” (2 Timothy 2:4).
Do you ever feel lassoed and tied up by all the causes, demands, requests, and responsibilities that vie for your attention? This often stems from codependent desires to please and not disappoint others. The solution may be a return to the boot camp of our faith and the reminder that we soldier for an audience of One. It is by this perspective toward the life of service that his Spirit gives meaning and purpose to our daily lives and routines.
