Putting On The Spurs

spurs01The Bible tells us to spur one another on toward love and
good deeds. Hebrews 10:24 What does it mean to
spur? What does spur mean to you? We use spurs while training
and working a horse. Not as a means of punishment or to be
pushy, but as a means to encourage and move the horse.
The term “to spur” means to encourage one to push on. We
want to encourage the horse to move a specific way, so that it
can navigate the path we need to take. I call my spurs
“Directional Control Devices”.
Our words to one another should be like a spur in a horse’s
side. Not to abuse or hurt, but to encourage people to do good
and love one another for the glory of God. Can we make our
voices Directional Control Devices, to encourage those
around us so that we may help them take the narrow trail? So
let’s all strap on a pair of spurs and guide one another onto the
narrow trail up the mountains.
Hebrews 10:24-25
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on
toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting
together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging
one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
