I decided go outside and eat some left over peanuts my wife brought home from Texas road house. While I was eating them I saw a squirrel holding onto a empty nut shell for dear life. I tried to offer him some of my nuts but the squirrel was afraid to give up his empty shell and take the fresh ones. Finally he gave up his empty shell for the good peanuts and kept coming back to me for more.. How many of us are like this squirrel too afraid to let go of ungodly relationships/habits and trust God for better?
Matthew 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
