Then, when your friend walks in the door, do you apologize for your home? People don’t come to your home to critique the laundry pile, the dirty dishes, or the undusted baseboards, but to visit with you.

Poco a Poco (airing 7:14-8:11pm EST) is Part 3 of a 4-Part series on King David, who sinned when he wasn’t doing what he was supposed to be doing; when he had pulled back from God’s calling. We have to be careful of comfort and of being distracted, because it leads to a place of being unfaithful. Instead, we have to keep moving forward in God’s will, which can regularly take us to less comfortable places. We’re called to lay down our lives—to endure the crosses of life and get to heaven. It’s not easy, but God’s faithfulness far outweighs our unfaithfulness. Remember, there are certain things the Lord does that he doesn’t take back, like free will. The same is true with anointings. Keep choosing to do what you’re supposed to be doing, and be faithful to the Father who is always faithful to you.
