Getting back to the ocean…The baby sea turtles in Planet Earth II’s “Cities” episode reminded me of how Jesus is the light of the world. We can’t be distracted by any lesser lights or shiny things like the baby sea turtles often and unfortunately are after they are hatched. The turtles have the instinct to travel towards the light but light pollution prevents them from going toward the light they actually need to go towards which shows them the way to the ocean. So, many baby turtles head into the city for what is often a tragic end instead of heading for their destiny of swimming in the ocean.
Thankfully, Jesus shines a bright light for us to follow. God says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
Thanks for reading this mini-series about the Ocean of Distractions! Chase after Jesus, instead of getting distracted. I’m preaching to myself too! I’m thankful God helps us overcome any distractions as we continue to seek Him. Have a great day!
