Rock Steady (Psalm 62)


When you find in God a Rock, you find the steadiest and sturdiest thing possible for your soul to stand upon. Lots of us have been through experiences this year that have knocked us down, thrown us around and shaken us out. The best thing you can do if you’re trying to find some solid ground to centre on is to plant your feet on solid rock.

The gospel frees us from: Perfectionism (Philippians 3:4b-14)


How many perfectionists does it take to change a lightbulb? Well, only one – but it will take them a very long time. First of all, they’ll notice the lightbulb needs changed. They’ll build it up as a big deal – there is this task to be done that must be done as well as possible.
Maybe they’ll look around for the most efficient type of bulb to replace this one. Then they’ll look around for the best price. Then they’ll buy the new bulb, and go ahead and change it. Whilst they’re up there, they’ll give the light a good dusting, and get the lampshade as straight as they can. Then they’ll evaluate it all. They’ll ponder whether they’ve bought the best bulb that they could have, and also wonder what others think about their bulb-changing performance.
