Several teenagers in our church participate in the high school marching band. They had a busy weekend recently, as the band participated in three Christmas parades in a 24-hour period. One girl was tired and sore from carrying a bass drum for those three parades.
I don’t hear them complaining though. They knew what they were getting into when they joined the band.
This Christmas season, we Christians usually have a lot of marching of our own to do. There are lots of extra church activities and seasonal opportunities to minister, along with the regular duties we have as Christ-followers.
We shouldn’t mind the busyness. That’s just what we do.
“To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:29.
