Laying Aside Weights

Hebrews 12:1 admonishes Christians to “Lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us.”  Many times those weights are simple distractions that create enormous drag. One preacher illustrated it this way: “It’s perfectly legal to run a race in army boots.” He said it wasn’t wise and would guarantee failure, but you can legally do it. Many of the things that prevent spiritual growth and development are legal, they just don’t lead to success.
