It is physically impossible to go in two directions at one time. One cannot go east and west simultaneously.
When it comes to our spiritual walk, we try to go in opposite directions. We try to walk in both the spiritual and sinful world. We want to hold onto both worlds. We want to live like the world all week and walk into church like a saint on Sunday. We use inappropriate language all week and sing What a Fellowship on Sunday. We take God's name in vain all week and sing Oh How I Love Jesus on Sunday. James 3:10-12 says, Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet and bitter?
How can we expect God to bless us daily when we live for Him only on Sunday? Maybe He should bless us only on the days we live for Him.
