This idea of fooling ourselves due to relative motion came to mind when I was thinking about my faith. Many folks refer to a relationship with Christ as their Christian walk. A walk of this sort implies forward motion and progress towards a goal. That goal being an ever-deepening trust in God and reliance on His word as defined in scripture. Too often I fool myself into believing that I am further along on my own Christian walk than I truly am because those around me are making progress, when actually I am at rest. I feel certain that this hasn't always been the case, that there have been seasons in my life when I have really risen up from who I was and the sinful ways that had claimed me. However, recently I seem to have fallen into a rut of passivity and inaction, a time of focusing far too much of my energy on myself and my own issues. I don't think the answer to my being entrenched is necessarily more time in prayer or more time reading my devotional books. I think possibly that I might do better hitching my train more tightly to others who actually are in motion.
