The writer of Hebrews warns us of the danger of drifting from God. Drifting is always a movement from stronger to weaker. A river never runs uphill, it is always headed downhill. So a life that is turned loose to drift is always headed down. Much success may have been accomplished, high ideals, past victories, but if one does not continue to build, he begins to drift. It takes effort to go upstream, but it takes no effort at all to drift. A young person doesn’t set out to be an alcoholic. But a drink here and a pint there, throw in some friends, pressure at school and home, and see what happens. A banker doesn’t intend to be an embezzler. But a few dollars here, some unpaid bills there, a falsified report thrown in and see what happens. Christian parents don’t intend to become unfaithful. But a Wednesday skipped here and a Sunday there, throw in some overtime, ballgames, and shop¬ping and see what happens. This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
