Logic is king in the world in which I work and live. Truth is a relative commodity, always shifting, changing. Facts are elusive, even when people are motivated to provide accurate details. Motives are always suspect and subject to political analysis. Loyalty and work ethics are personal values on should treasure even if they are never recognized. In the daily battles, logic is king.
I find it hard to leave my work world and journey to a completely different place and time called home, family, friends, and real life. As much as I believe relationships are crucial, God is central, choices in ethics and morality toward God and my fellow human beings are king; my work world creeps in with a stealth spies would admire. I continue the fight to my God’s world the way I see corporate life but the battle is daily and continuous. I find days God’s framework is top of the heap; in other times the corporate view and my self-focus takes the prime spot.
The choice to make God central in one’s life defies logic. It is a choice made on what will be, not what one sees. If we could see clearly, we would see what Abraham and people before Christ lived could not, God plan in full. With clear sight, God’s logic is very compelling; however, there are few, if any, who can or will see a clear view of God. In our skewed corporate world, God’s logic is confusing to most.
God anticipated our confusion and difficulty. God’s character dictated that he do something radical and unconditional. God put a plan in action where his promise is available to all without reservation or qualification. God invites all of us into relationship, for as long as we choose to be there. “That famous promise God gave to Abraham – that he and his children would possess the earth – was not given because of something Abraham did or would do. It was based on God’s decision to put everything together for him, which Abraham then entered when he believed.” (Romans 4.13)
