Checkers is played regularly in our home. We come by our love for it honestly. My sons’ great-grandfather is an expert player – outmaneuvering every member of the family since, well, forever. During our regular visits to see him in Baltimore, he squares off with one family member after another, only to beat them quick and easy, all the while shaking his head in disbelief that anyone would even attempt to steal his patriarchal crown.
He is the Checkers champion indeed. At least in our neck of the woods.
He is also a good teacher and generous with his knowledge. On nearly every turn, he’ll tell you why he’s making a particular move and how it brings his piece one step closer to getting kinged.
That’s his goal, to get his pieces positioned to become kings.
All twelve pieces have the opportunity to become a king. In fact, each of them was made for royalty. They all have the same potential. But achieving this destiny is predicated on making the right moves. Positioning is everything.
The right moves.
The right choices.
The right opportunities.
The right directions.
The right endeavors.
A master is needed to assist in an important operation like this one – thoughtfully guiding and deliberately posturing his pieces to receive the crown they were created for.
Good thing we’ve got a Champion on our side. He’s the master at putting us in the right place at the right time and in the right way to receive His best.We’ve got a Champion on our side. He’s the master at putting us in the right place at the right time and in the right way to receive His best.
What lies ahead of you today? This week? This month? Don’t worry. Trust. He’s got you.
Praying for you today. 🙂
