Comfortable, like Lions in a Zoo

Dear Mosaic Boston Family,

I'm always a little sad when I take my girls to the zoo. I don't feel so bad for the little animals being locked up, we do that all the time with cats and dogs and hamsters. However, I always feel a tinge of sadness for the elephants, zebras, and in particularly, for the lions. Lions in the wild are ferocious and glorious. Lions in the zoo are comfortable and pathetic. 

One of the most dangerous toxins to our spiritual life and growth is the toxin of comfort. Comfort kills all growth, but especially spiritual growth. When we worship at the alter of the idol of comfort, by orienting our lives around becoming as comfortable as we possibly can, our souls are lulled to sleep and we are rendered ineffective. We lock ourselves in cages of comfort, and we becomes shells of our potential selves. Though temporarily uncomfortable, we need a spiritual detox from the toxicity of comfort. 

Join us tomorrow as we look at the story of the rich person who becomes even more wealthy and retires early to a life of indulgence and "relaxation." However, since he makes the sole purpose of his life his personal comfort, Jesus calls him a "fool". 

Praying for you!
Pastor Jan
