At its very roots, life is about God. Whether you shake your fist at him, consider him so distant that his existence is irrelevant, or tremble before him because you feel that you are under his judgment, the reality is this:
the basic questions of life and the fundamental issues of the human heart are about God.
Life is about knowing him or avoiding him. It is about spiritual allegiances. Whom will you trust in the midst of pain? Whom will you worship?
Questions for Reflection
- Do you realize all of life is about God?
- How are you responding to God?
