Thought of the Day August 25, 2021 Embrace but be not possessed by creation

By 10:11 AM

The world is not evil, though evil is in the world. God created the world good, but not a god. The evil in the world comes from the result of sin. The world has a lot that is good to offer us, as long as we don't make it a god to whom we give allegiance. We are to use the good according to God's plan and for his glory rather than be possessed by it.  Jesus reminded us that we are in the world not of the world. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. We are sons and daughters of God, sharing his divine life. Our destiny is not in this world, which will end, but in eternal life with God. Like the Chosen People, there is a promised land ahead. Don't long for the fleshpots of Egypt and die in the desert of sin. Hear, obey and follow the way of the Lord, who leads us to the heavenly land, flowing with milk and honey.
