The “Duh” Moments of Life

duhTonight a group of us were discussing the man who was healed at the Pool of Bethesda in John 5. Jesus asked this guy a great question, “Do you want to be healed?” Sounds like a “duh” moment. Yet it wasn’t. Not all people want to be healed or to change.
As I reflected on this, I remembered back to an incident last week. I was having a great time walking the hills with Jesus. I was still enjoying our time together as I came home, finished some tasks, and then got into my car to head off to my next appointment.
Then the choice came. Would I turn on the radio or continue having a great time with Jesus? Another “duh” moment, right? It should have been, but it wasn’t. I turned on the radio! I went from having a great time with Jesus to listening to sports radio.
Don’t get me wrong. Sports radio is not sin. At that moment, however, it was for me. I took a drug of choice – sounds over silence. I chose listening to useless sports talk over staying in the presence of Jesus. I loved my routine more than Jesus at the moment. I chose not to change.
Had one of those “duh” moments yourself this week? Learn from me. Change is good, being like Jesus is even better.
