Is your immortality getting in the way of eternal life?
23 May 2018
Sometimes we just want to be God. It feels good to be in charge of our lives and manager of what is happening around us, but how much of this is an illusion? We are not in control of our lives. We are children of a loving God receiving each moment of life as a gift. Pride wants us to feel like we are immortal, like gods living at the centre of the universe directing matters. Sometimes I catch myself being so busy organising my world, as if it all depends on me, that I neglect listening to God. Of course, we need to be responsible and do our best with the resources God has given us but remembering that God is God puts life into perspective and opens us up to a genuine relationship with the one who loves us most.
Lord keep me humble and in touch with the reality of your love and truth.
