Complacent comfort?

I’m already feeling quite comfortable here.  That’s what scares me.  You see, I just read in the conclusion of “Under the Overpass”: “Be relentlessly suspicious of your comfortable life, and of the comfort zones that render so many Christian fellowships insensitive and ineffective in our communities.”  Unfortunately, when we are comfortable we are often complacent as well. 


I’ve made a lot of friends among the residents and our homeless guests.  But will I be satisfied with this group of friends without pursuing the rest?  I’ve had many conversations on spiritual issues.  Will I consider those people “witnessed to” without following up on those discussions?  It appears that I’ll see many of our guests and residents almost every day.    Might I lose the sense of urgency that “today is the day of Salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2)?  Jesus told the parable of the lost sheep to show us the importance of one lost soul to Him and the Father.  I pray that I will persistently and intentionally spread salt, light, and truth to all who the Lord brings my way.


  1. Stay strong.
