We’ve all seen (or maybe have been) fence sitters, straddling that narrow wire between right and wrong, Uncomfortable? You bet.How long can a person ride a wire and not hurt?
I like to call fence sitters Mug-Wumps…like birds on a fence wire,trying to face both directions at the same time…Impossible! Mug-Wumps have their head on one side of the fence and their wump on the other and can’t decide which way to face.
We all know there can be no Mug-Wumps (fence sitters) in Heaven-either we are for God or against Him.
We are Mug-Wumps if we
1) say one thing and do another (lie)
2)aren’t consistant in our actions.
3)don’t treat everyone the same, with respect, no matter where they are in life,(ei: rich man,poor man,begger man or thief)
4)act righteous in public and demanding and over bearing in private.
5)tell others ‘be good’ and then behave improperly
6)pretend to be something or someone we’re not
7)treat strangeers like kings and family like dirt.
Jesus was (is) no Mug-Wump- He knew what side of the fence He was on.I want to bejust like Him, and have people know which side of the fence I’m on.
Josh 24:15 the last part.
“But as for me and my family,we will serve the Lord”
