From the outside, I can see why some people think this. Until you’ve experienced the peace that surpasses anything that life can provide, it can look silly. I get it.
As someone who follows Jesus, I would say the whole crutch thing is a little lame-sauce…yeah, I just said lame-sauce. I prefer to put the crutches aside and think of Jesus as my parachute instead.
Crutches only support one part of the body. A parachute means everything. A parachute means life and without it, falling out of a high place means death. That’s just it, Jesus is my everything. I don’t just lean on him like He’s a piece of wood under my armpit. I cling to Him for life because He is life.
If I ever start to just lean on Jesus for comfort, it’s ok, but it’s not the best. He wants all of us.
