James 1: 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
This unfortunate looking creature is a representation of a hedgehog. I use it here to represent the person who is always hedging their bets. To a Christian it means walking with one foot in the kingdom and the other n the world. So many of the so-called Christian organizations and denominations are content to see past sins forgiven and hope for some far of day to walk in heaven without ever coming to the place where they understand that God wants every part of us in the kingdom serving him here on earth. 1 Peter 1: 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
A preacher once looked me in the eye, singling me out among several hundred other people and basically dared me saying, “Would God ever command what he would not make possible?” It was for me a powerful moment of affirmation that has sustained me through the years of ministry and allowed me to serve in some pretty horrible circumstances with unabashed hope.
