Recently, lace bite put a famous hockey player on crutches. If skates are too tight or not deep enough for the feet, severe pain may result. Basically, the shoe does not fit.
We’ve all had a dose of it at one time or another. We take on a job that’s too big or that we do not understand. We sign on for stuff we can’t handle. We take on more than our schedule allows.
Even Paul contracted lace bite. I was just as zealous for God as any of you are today. I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death. (Acts 22:3b-4, NIV)
His brush with lace bite made him aware of it in others. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.(Romans 10:2, NIV)
Prayer- Father God, may we only be zealous for you. Amen.
