Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own insight. (Proverbs 3:5)
If I trust in the LORD with all my heart then I live believing in my unique giftedness, as well as the goodness and giftedness of those around me. Whether they believe in themselves is another matter! Life raises difficulties of all sorts. The extent to which we can trust in the LORD rather than rely on our own insight will determine how much those difficulties ‘knock us off course’.
The Gospel message is not complicated – but our world, including the world of our young people, has so many competing messages. For better or worse, the ‘quick fix’ is prized. One thing I have learned is that the Gospel message requires much practice to live well. Another thing I have learned is that if I rely on my own insight ’there lies madness’.
Have a great week!
