Something is going on. I am sure about it. You see I don’t believe in fate or co-incidence. Believing in that means not believing in God being involved in everything.
I have been blogging about THE question for three of four days now.
What in my day to day living has eternal value? I am still stuck on it! There are very few things I can think of to be quite honest.
So yesterday my daughter gets in the car. Excitedly rambling on about all that has happened in her day. Oh and she has to play me a song. It’s her new favourite. I have no idea who sings it – I lost track when I heard the chorus.
“We do too many things that don’t mean much”.
Bucket of ice water in the face. Say what?
I get home just in time to leave for house-church. I am still dumbstruck by how her song confirms my blogging of a few days. At house-church, I get asked to read a piece of scripture. Hold on to your chair:
Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things. Do what you have learned or received or heard from me. Follow my example. The God who gives peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:8-9 (New International Reader’s Version)
In short: follow Paul’s example and concentrate on things that has eternal value.
