Have you heard of someone who became fervent and devout in their faith and taking my word and commandments seriously described as going off the deep end? This is not meant as a compliment. What about those who are marginal in their faith, attending but not involved, content to remain on the perimeter of the work I am doing, and never fully engaging and living their beliefs? Do you hear of them described as going off the shallow end? Yet which is more prevalent? And which is the greater danger? It is more dangerous to dive in shallow water than deep water. Beware that you don’t go off the shallow end.
My wife’s knee replacement went great today. Thanks for your prayers.
