too many minds

Tom Cruise wanted to be a samurai in "The Last Samurai."
He knew how to handle the sword.
He had the fire in him.
But he couldn't beat his opponents.
That was when his Japanese friend whispered in his ears, "Too many minds. Mind the sword. Mind people. Mind the enemy."
"Don't mind."

And so he learned.
To not let his "too many minds" distract his focus, and weaken his moves.
And he became a warrior.

In this season of celebrations, camps, and year-end commitment, let us not let the "many things" bother us and cause us to lose sight of the "one thing" that is needful, Christ Himself.
Let us not be too many minds.
Don't mind.

About Me

In the Old Testament in the Bible, there was a man named Jacob who "wrestled with God and man." He wouldn't let God go until God answered his prayers. God admired that and renamed him Israel, "the one who fought or wrestled and prevailed". He fought with man--his inner man--and conquered his own weaknesses. He's my hero. He is what I hope God and man see me to be.
