Our Desperate Search for Superiority

eye-2644086_960_720

Topic of interest:
When we bow to Christ’s true superiority we no longer need to seek our own.
Speaking about the passages found in John 4:1-45.

My teenage daughter’s response:
Sure, we are not superior, but as humans created in the image of God, we are always going to search for it. To create, to live, to know… it comes from a small wanting inside all of us to be like God.

Is it terrible to want to be like God? No, because we as humans strive to be like the people we think of as great. It is not terrible to strive for greatness. It is only when that greatness consumes us that we forget why we wanted it in the first place.

Great and terrible people throughout history have strived for this unreachable greatness to the point of madness. To be like God and to be God, are two different points. Though they both sound equally good, one is always available and one never is.

Sunday thoughts…

sunset-1331088_960_720

At the end of the day when all is said and done, I’d much rather have God on my side than anyone else. As long as I’m in his good graces, nothing else matters. So I continue to live each day for him, and though I may stumble from time to time, he never fails to offer me his hand to lift me up. There is no other friend I know of who can love me like this and I am so grateful that God chose me to believe in him. I really don’t know how else I’d ever make it through this life.  ~M

Did you realize that if you spell the word “live” backwards, it spells the word “evil,” and if you spell the word “lived” backwards, it spells the word “devil?”  Is this perhaps the reason, that life is often considered a “living hell?”  ~M
