After Galatians 5:1-15

You were running the race,

and running well, feet 

in motion and eyes 

on the goal. The end,

the finish line, was

in sight. And yet

you stopped, attention

diverted to another

goal, another song,

seductive but false, 

a siren singing

to attract the ear and

betray the heart. Was

the song that compelling,

that attractive, even

when your heart knew

So many temptations in this world, Glynn. May God always lead us away from them.
