Are you rising or are you falling?


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Do you want to be average? Do you want to be above average? Do you want to be below average? Do you want to be on top or at the bottom? More importantly, are you rising or are you falling? Those are the questions we should all be asking ourselves when we consider whether or not we are average. Average is equally as close to the bottom as it is to the top, but average can be a starting point or a stop on our rise to the top or our fall to the bottom, a moment to decide whether we will remain on our current path or turn around. That is the choice that faces us, will we rise above the average or will we fall below it? Are we doing all we can to rise above the average or are we just treading water to remain there or are we giving up and allowing ourselves to sink.? That’s the choice that faces us when we find ourselves at the level of average and contemplating whether we will attempt to rise or just allow ourselves to sink. In the end, the choice will be whether we use all that God has given us to achieve the potential His blessings have made it possible for us to achieve, or we will simply shun those blessings and allow all our God-given potential to slip away. With that in mind, the question remains, will you strive to rise to the stop or simply allow yourself to sink? Well, which will it be? Up or down? Your choice.
