Our heroes all collect baggage. Consider David the great slayer of Goliath who went on to commit adultery with Bathsheba, murder her husband and more.
Or Saul, so unwilling to lead the Israelites, that they found him hiding in the baggage. (1 Samuel 10:22)
Later on, he collected his own baggage by disobeying the Lord in multiple ways.
David did know better. He left his baggage behind on his greatest day of victory. (1 Samuel 10:22) Leave your baggage, friend. Leave it in care of the baggage keeper, God
You are someone’s hero. There is a grandchild watching you, a son needing guidance, a neighbor in distress. Did you leave your baggage behind or are you still carrying guilt, pride, self-deception, greed and other multiple sins on your back?
Listen to God’s case: “I had children and raised them well, and they turned on me. The ox knows who is boss, the mule knows the hand that feeds him, But not Israel. My people don’t know up from down. Shame! Misguided God-dropouts, staggering under their guilt-baggage, Villainous gang, band of vandals— My people walked out on me, their God, turned their backs on The Holy of Israel, walked off and never looked back. (Isaiah 1:2-4)
