2 John 1:9 ESV "Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son." In my rush to get there, I ran ahead! Today's Word is about getting ahead of God and that's not a good thing! As a young boy, my dad took me fishing and as we walked along the shore, to get to the spot where he wanted us to fish, I ran ahead of him not knowing where I was going. I ran so fast because of being excited to fish that I took my eyes off where I was walking and eventually fell in the rocks. With skinned knee, my father picked me up and hugged me as the tears ran down my face. Many times, in our excitement to get things done, we run ahead of God's plan. We need not to get ahead of Him and keep His teachings so we don't end up in tears! He will hug us and comfort us but let's not rush ahead of Him but enjoy the journey with Him! peace, tom
