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.
