I don’t really believe in personal destiny. I believe in making choices, and the Divine Providence who knew what choices I would make long before I came to be. Without getting into an enormous theological discussion about destiny, allow me to say…
I think I stumbled into a couple glimpses of my destiny today. It was terrifying. It was healing. It was confrontational. I’m not sure what to make of it. It caused me to ask some big questions, the most important being: Is there anything you would be willing to die for?
It’s such a flippant discussion in Christian circles. We all want to say we’d be willing to die for the cause of Christ. I’m not sure that we would be. If we would, I’m not sure we’d be so quick to claim it.
But are there other things? Would you be willing to die for your family? Your friends? An innocent stranger? Your country?
Food for thought.
Have a good weekend.
