Now that's worth repeating. "If the horse is dead, dismount." I heard this one-liner recently while listening to Joyce Meyers.
It caused me first to laugh and then a second later to soberly consider: Am I riding a dead horse?
Some of us have a hard time admitting the horse is dead. We're convinced that if we kick a little harder, we can spur our stallion on.
But unlike the intriguing classification in the Princess Bride, even "mostly dead" (when it comes to horses) is as good as completely d-e-a-d.
Dismounting might not be easy. Heck, you might even cry. But, friend, one thing is sure: the horse is dead.
I'm sorry. You're sorry. The world might even be sorry. But no matter. The horse is dead. Time to dismount.
Don't look back.
... fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith ...
