Giving Up or The Continued Quest for the Ideal

This week I have been torn between continuing to strive for the kingdom or just becoming complacent and living as good of an individual Christian life as I can and not worry about the kingdom.

It seems that it would be so much easier to be a lone ranger Christian. I see why it is appealing. No conflict with other Christians over what the church should do. No taking time out to help another brother or sister out in their struggles except for when it is convenient to me. No frustration over churches failing to be examples of the kingdom.

I know I need to continue to seek the kingdom first and all of the ideals it stands for. It's just frustrating. I don't even know where to begin without planting a church.

Watch out for the potholes.
