Missing the Mark

Originally, the definition of “sin” was simply missing the mark and was an archery term.  The solution was to recharge, aim and fire again rather than waller in regret and ruminate with “what ifs”.  That makes such sense to me and so much simpler.  Matthew 15:1 states “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”

That is to say, I think, if it does not come from God, it cannot be real so they only thing that is destroyed is erroneous thinking.  Good can never be destroyed.  As Christmas is upon us, my focus will be on the real reason we celebrate.  It is the birth of the Christ, Truth that is in my heart and I will draw nearer to God as my days fill up with “busyness”.
