Galatians 5:13

I recall pushing our kids on the swing, and then grandkids, and then foster kids. Back and forth, back and forth. Most of them wanted to go “higher,” with cries of delight when we honored their request. Of course, on a swing set, the place of rest is at the bottom. To enjoy that rest to the max, the child simply needs to stop swinging But when swinging, the kids spend but a fraction of a second passing through that resting point. The child wants to swing, not rest. Sadly, may Christians experience the same thing in their lives. We tend to swing between extremes, missing the bottom – living under grace!
