What Buttons Are You Chasing?

Text: Ephesians 4:17-5:14 – Pastor Russ shared the account of a former prisoner from the island penitentiary of Alcatraz who kept his sanity in solitary confinement by throwing a button from his shirt in the air and then searching for it in the darkness, only to repeat that exercise over and over. Russ compared this futile activity to the way we often chase after meaningless things in our lives instead of pursuing the One who redeemed us for eternal life. We chase after the “buttons” of success, power, money, fame, pleasure – things that distract us from living as children of light.
