These friends of Bugs (bunny) crisscross our yard constantly. We don't have a garden so they are harmless and cute.. I guess... but what goes on in their little minds as they scamper from here to there and back again. All this is done of course as they travel their literal bunny trails. Then I wonder.. are there 'bad bunnies'.. you know, with tattoos hanging out the street corner smoking cigs and.. sorry, I guess my mind just went on its own bunny trail.
Of course for the most part the literal bunny trails in my yard and the nonsensical bunny trails in my head are harmless. They may be puzzling, possibly frustrating, but seriously no harm no foul. But what about the more serious bunny trails we take? In a world that needs Jesus we are busy with bunny trails... even Pokemon Go trails.. really?
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. Js 1:27
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Mt 22:37-40 .
There you have it.. all that is important shared economically in just 5 scripture verses, BUT.. what about climbing the corporate ladder, keeping up with the Jones's, and HEY.. Netlix is not gonna watch itself. Maybe you have traveled down the traditional wine, women, and song path, or have become lost on bunny trail of self-doubt spinning in place lacking direction or purpose. All of the above can be definite bunny trails that have nothing to do with Js 1:27 and/or Mt 22:37-40.
May God bless your life's journey with focus and purpose, and may He provide hope and direction for those of you off on a bunny trail.
