I am in a serious conundrum. How much effort should I expend trying to educate someone, especially when events from above and beyond will quickly overwhelm all on the same subject? Whatever viewpoint you take, “we already know” to “we have lots to learn”, the answer is not easy. Does one struggle on or just wait? Is the effort now important from a relationship perspective, regardless of how things turn out? Given that I only know what I know do I push on believing that truth will win regardless?
I many ways it feels like I am in the middle of an argument that is far bigger than any “thing” I might say. This is a corporate question more than it is a personal or group one yet I sense there are still important events at the local level that need to run their course. It is as if I am being pulled into the “truth” of the future. Along the way I can sense my role to be played if I continue to trust the process.
In the middle of it all I find myself frustrated because others cannot or will not see “the” picture. In a Jesus story his response echoed what I longed to say if I was on a perfect foundation.
“You're tied down to the mundane; I'm in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I'm living on other terms. I told you that you were missing God in all this. You're at a dead end. If you won't believe I am who I say I am, you're at the dead end of sins. You're missing God in your lives.” (John 8.23, 24)
I read the words and find myself reflecting on the image in the mirror. I am often as blind as I see those around me. I know that I exclude God far more than I realize. I can feel the dead end coming up quickly!
Today I can give myself up to Divinity for alignment. Opportunities abound!
