Self determination leads to spiritual blindness
We can be blindly arrogant and selfish. For some, the lens through which we view life is the lens of self-benefit. Having this <em>myopic</em> vision, the plight and station of others are off our radar and of no genuine concern.
Being self-sufficient and resilient, we can wonder if all of this “God-talk” is for real. If we believe we are solely responsible for our destiny and well-being, what place is there for God?
Tangible faith requires an actual change of heart, a conversion. It involves walking a courageous journey of transformation that consists of a shift in priorities and focus. Humility becomes the order of the day. An authentic loving relationship with God blossoms within a person’s soul. God becomes an ever-faithful companion.
