July 15 – Entangled

A great horned owl was flying too low when he got entangled in a soccer net recently. His efforts to free himself just wound the netting more securely around him. Fortunately, a caretaker from a nearby school saw him and called a wildlife technician, who cut the netting and set him free. Often we too find ourselves entangled by habits or cares of this life that keep us from giving attention to matters pertaining to the next life. We are bound by what is sometimes called the “tyranny of the immediate.” But God’s Word reminds us that “now is the time of God’s favour, now is the day of salvation.” We are also promised that when we reach out by faith, that “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” To those entangled in the bondage of unbelief and a questionable lifestyle, Jesus promised, “ the truth shall set you free.”
