I was created specifically and intentionally versus through randomness and purposeless…here we are!
God thinks of me as his son, one to teach and nurture versus we are just animals, doing a little better than the rest.
God took care of my inevitable problem, the one I couldn’t deal with on my own versus the universe doesn’t care about us.
A couple things.
A. The first of each is in first-person, because we each matter (while the second is often talked about in the collective because first-person is too depressing).
B. There’s no purpose or point in living in the second. Nothing beyond ourselves, which, again, see A above.
Fortunately, God has a made good way forward for us.
“If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
– Jesus (John 15:5)
My new book walks through a year of sabbath reflections on how we can more understand the first. Check it out here.
