Don’t let the ideal become an idol

I’m an idealist.  I like to think and plan and prepare for the worst case scenarios, and I like to always have the best case outcomes.  I interact with people who think the same as I do, and some who sharpen me with an alternate view, or a scenario I hadn’t considered, or a different perspective.

I am challenged today to not let the ideal become an idol.  And it so easily can happen.  Be it homeschooling, modest dress, homesteading, or whatever your ideal is…you know, that “conviction” or “vision” you have for yourself or your family…guard carefully, that it doesn’t take the place of God in your life.

That is all.

Carry on.
