Take Up Your Cross
By: Chaz Bell
Luke 9:23-24 (NLT)
(23) Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me. (24) If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
“Two battleships assigned to a training squadron had been at sea on maneuvers in heavy weather for several days. I was serving on the lead battleship and was on watch on the bridge as night fell. The visibility was poor with patchy fog, so the captain remained on the bridge keeping an eye on all activities. Shortly after dark the lookout on the wind of the bridge reported, “Light, bearing on the starboard bow.” “Is it steady or moving astern?” The captain called out. Lookout replied, “Steady, captain,” which meant we were on the dangerous collision course with that ship. The captain then called to the signalman, “Signal that ship: We are on a collision course, advise them to change course 20 degrees.” Back came a signal, “Advisable for you to change course 20 degrees.” The captain said, “Send I’m a captain, change your course 20 degrees.” “I’m a seaman-second class, “ came the reply. “You had better change course 20 degrees.” By that time, the captain was furious. He spat out, “Send, I’m a battleship. Change course 20 degrees.” Back came the flashing light, “I’m a lighthouse.” We changed course.” - Stephen Covey, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
