MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: Buck has this favorite tree that he always goes to. He loves it. Yesterday I caught him and yelled for him to come back to the porch. I literally caught myself saying “Buck! Don’t eat that tree! That’s the ONE tree you can’t eat!” As soon as I said it, I was like 😳.
We’ve tried to use the b-b gun to dissuade him. Literally all we have to do is shake it and he hears the noise and runs away...but that tree. It’s like a drug to him. He keeps wanting to go back.
Made me wonder what each of our trees might be. The ONE we’ve been told over and over again to NOT EAT OF. The one our Father has tried to dissuade us from going back to with a little b-b sting or a shaking to get our attention to STOP. Buck is not bad. We don’t love him any less. He just gets tempted easily by the beautiful color of that tree.
I love the simplicity of this morning thought. I see myself in this and am so grateful for a loving God who continually pulls me back and away from temptation.
Isn’t it truly amazing how God constantly speaks to us- in the small things throughout the day? We need to be tuned in and sensitive to His nudgings. Thanks E!
