In Every Way
Read: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:3-10
Have you ever thought how many bizarre, inconsequential choices had to have been made just so you could rub shoulders with someone in the grocery store who is talking way too loudly on the phone about their weekend plans?
Millions and millions of choices all intersecting or passing each other had to happen just exactly so for us to live in this place and not that, or for us to interact with the people we know, or even for you read the words you are reading right now. In a very real sense, it is truly a miraculous thing that we have landed exactly where we are today in the enormous complex web of the universe.
But we have landed exactly where we are.
And because we are exactly where we are, we are called to commend ourselves as servants of God in every way that we can.
God of the universe, you are miraculous and mysterious! In whatever circumstance you have placed us, whenever and with whoever, strengthen us so we will commend ourselves as your faithful servants. AMEN.
