Life just isn’t fair! As I see how people are totally devastated by decisions of people around them and how they suffer because of those decision, I get angry. Matt made a statement a couple of years ago that the only thing that can destroy a marriage is selfishness. I have pondered that statement and, you know, I think he is right. When we live for only ourself, we become totally self centered and it is all about me and what makes me feel good and the rest of the world can go to……I see so many broken homes and marriages because of this self centeredness. But isn’t this what we hear everywhere…I am leaving this church because it is not meeting MY needs; this marriage isn’t meeting my needs so I am out of here. This world propogates that I am the most important person and it is all about me. How do we counter this? Do we really believe that we are the ultimate? In reading the book “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson, I came to the realization that we as humanity really don’t know very much. With all the discoveries humanity has made the realization comes that there is just so much more out there that we don’t know. This book again brought me to thinking about God and Who is God? and Who am I? These are always great questions to come back to. Well, enough rambling for today…just my thoughts…not very coherent today…I need to eat….
