Reading my daily devotional, it appears it is much more a workbook, which I like. It offers stories and then gives you lessons or things to think about. Today’s lesson was about entering a door while carrying items.
We have all done it. We come in from the grocery store with our arms full of grocieries. We struggle to navigate the door, to step over the shoes at the door, etc. But the rule is that we gather our bags from our vehicle, set the bags down, open the door, and navigate our entry into the home, before once more picking up the items before we step in the door.
Why is this important? Because when we enter a door of opportunity, we must navigate our entry before we step inside that door. We may have to leave some bags behind, at least at first, to get through the door safely and soundly.
How many opportunities have we taken that seemed liked they were doomed from the start, or that never got off the right foot? Did we try entering the door with other baggage that would keep us from fulfilling that opportunity? If that is the case, then we must examine our own readiness before entering a door of opportunity. What items do we need to let go of, so we can be successful?
