The path to results

Once upon a time, in an ancient & almost forgotten century, there was a movie called When Harry Met Sally.  In the movie, there are these brief interviews with couples who have been married for eons.  What has lingered in my memory from these interviews & from watching couples who are old & have been married since before time, is often the rich texture, the broad understanding & genuine respect that these relationships evidence.  There’s something very alluring & appealing to seeing these long-term relationships.  With all of this being said, I don’t really consider myself to be much of a romantic person (skip the roses, chocolate & I’m unable to muster the interest to endure watching Pride & Prejudice, no matter who the actors are). BUT, what I do like are the results from these long-term committments.

So here’s my point:  the results we often crave in our lives (significance, love, fulfillment, intimacy, satisfaction, achievement, etc) are often nothing less than the consequences of committment, a word that is often disdained in our modern culture.  Perhaps when Jesus talked about abiding in Him to bear much fruit / results, just maybe He was talking about being committed to Him in a deeply personal & daily relationship.  Just a little food for thought ,)

  1. Ahhhh the XYZ’erssssss. Everything in it’s time. What amazed me about HMS was that before you know it – YOU ARE the old folks hahaha- Enjoy.
    Right now I’m thanking the Lord in Advance for my Fiscal Miracle and it would be good to win the Powerball – even though we are as equally as blessed just a lot of icing on the cake. Smile
