It’s amazing how the Lord reaches out to me. I’ve recently started reading a new bible. It’s called Start! and last night, I read how an important thing Christians must accomplish is the discipline to read the Bible. We’re so used to instant gratification in our society and the Bible is one of those things we cannot just get instant gratification from. We have to dedicate time to really absorb the messages God has placed for us because believe it or not, the same words that have been used for hundreds of years deliver different messages every day! For that connection with God we seek, just like that love story or perfect friendship, calls for us to try and go above and beyond the “instant” society we live in.
I’m writing these words with the knowledge that people from around the world are going to read them. People of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, of different religious beliefs. Most of them, I’ll never get a chance to meet. Most of them, I don’t know how they look like, what’s the thing they want most in this world, or what is it that they’re afraid of… most of them are perfect strangers to me.
