We are encouraged to look upon the world and it’s circumstances as that which is becoming.
The realist in us prods to rage against this injustice, that inequality, or all those negative circumstances.
How does this help?
Is it not true that making war with an enemy, only tends to enliven and embolden said enemy and simultaneously chase away tranquility?
Like a toddler screaming at a parent, so must we appear, rebelling against that which is.
What if life is a gift from God, and a key to unwrapping more of the gift, is to accept and acknowledge that which has already been given?
If God is perfect, as some assert, is it possible for an imperfect creation to emerge from a perfect intelligence?
When we see “imperfection” in the world around us, maybe it’s our personal definition of ‘perfection‘ that requires refinement.
Do not problems create opportunities?
Does not injustice strengthen our appreciation of justice?
Does not the fiery heat of tragedy often simmer up the best of the human soul?
Perfect for our growth, yet incomplete in destination.
Perfect, yet incomplete.
And so mote we be. 😉
