A Massachusetts fisherman recently caught a rare lobster that is half orange and half black, with the colors split down the middle. Such coloration is estimated to occur only once in every 50 million lobsters.
Far more common are people who seem to be of two different colors. They try to keep one foot in the kingdom of God and the other foot in the world. Their thoughts and actions often conflict with their professed beliefs.
The Bible says that such a person is easily tossed back and forth by the wind; that “He is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.” (James 1:6-8).
This certainly doesn’t seem to be how God wants us to live. We are challenged to make consistent decisions about important matters. Joshua 24:15 says, “…Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
