The Kitchen Table Day 25
Today’s Reading: Psalm 12:1-9; Is 29:1-12; James 3:13-18
Light dawns in the darkness for the upright Ps 112:4
Each one of us will decide how we’re going to look at life. And once again that choice will be made in the heart, not the head. We will look from what we love. James writes about a wisdom that is from below, that is demonic, that is filled with jealousy and selfish ambition in our hearts. We look at life according to what we really love in life. It’s hard to trust and obey when we love our life more than His life. Isaiah prophesied how Jerusalem would become strangely blind, seeing but not able to read or understand because of their love for this life rather than His life. Religion doesn’t help much, only a living breathing relationship with God helps and heals. Light dawns in the darkness for the upright… I’ve often wondered if going to heaven isn’t more about seeing then ceasing.
