Are you getting derailed or staying on track?

fall 07 253Staying on track, or taking one step at a time, keep moving forward.

Everybody says they want to be free. Take the train off the tracks and it’s free but it can’t go anywhere.   Zig Zilgar

Freedom is not free. We need to count the cost before we move forward, even when something may appear to be free. Example: Free room and board, all you have to do is take out the trash and be home by 9:00 to keep the home owner company. Is it really free? Every thing has a price tag on it, seen or unseen, physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

I have learned it is best to slow down, ponder and take time to evaluate before making a commitment of any source. Why? Any commitment, large or small, always cost something; time, finances, and energy, as well as other things.

Like the train, I would rather be on a track, and keep moving, than to be derailed. Bad choices can even cause a train wreck, and definitely get us off track. As time moves forward, let us all remember our mission in life and not allow others to distract us from our goals.

  1. ‘Freedom is never free’, this is a principle I remind my economics students all the time. I teach them the acronym ‘tanstaafl’—there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.

    Slowing down to ponder is a skill that seems to come as we continue to move on this journey of life, wisdom gained to think through and ultimately appreciate every moment and opportunity and to rest in the sovereignty of God.

    • I appreciate your comments. I find it is going to be interesting to write here as well as on our assignment. Perhaps we can be creative and combine the two! You are a blessing, happy writing.
