There’s a myth going around out there that when we follow God… we KNOW where we are going.
Nothing could be further from the truth. God does not chart for us a way as much as God calls us to LIVE a certain way no matter the cost.
The world is an unpredictable place and all sorts of things can happen. Many times these things happen because of the actions of others or because of world circumstances. Our lives are connected with all the other lives in the world… and we are affected by them.
So, what are we to do? It is clear that there are no ‘answers’ from God as to what we should do at any given moment. Rather, we are called to LIVE a certain way. And, in living this way we embody what God has in mind for us:
Loook at the greatest commands:
“’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’(Matthew 22:37-39)
Jesus gave us a road map not for how to predict what would happen next or where we are going, but rather, he gave us a road map of how to live…
…and in the living we chart our own way forward with God!
