But sometimes we are pursuing the wrong things in the wrong direction.
Did you hear the story about the elderly lady that had heard on the news about a car driving the wrong way on the interstate

“Claude you need to be extra careful coming home.

If you are not pursuing God’s agenda for your life in every area of your life
Then the first step is the step of repentance
Stop and turn around
