There's leanness in the souls of a lot of people and it shouldn't surprise us that folks who haven't found a loving, gracious master have lean souls. But what have we to say as people who claim to have been set free from the ways of the world when we're caught up in the same currents of busyness, of anxiety, of discouragement, of being as overwhelmed and stressed and depressed as they are? The world that's looking for a way out will look a lot of places but not to us when they see us swimming along with them, fighting the current of life as they are. They won't know that Jesus is who He said He was, and they will not look to Him as King. And they will not be able to come to the One who looks to comfort them the way that He's offered to comfort us. There's a lot at stake.
