Thought of the day:
Living our lives in a world of slogans and desideratums deeply understood in the mentality of the consumer society, we have brought ourselves into the position where it is almost impossible to discern that practical idea that defines real Christianity.
Through its slogans, the contemporary consumer society has therefore conditioned our minds to use idealistic clichés but without a necessarily practical application.
The danger is real because it pushes us into a state of false faith in which we are often satisfied with statements not duplicated in practice, considering that by a simple word spoken with pathos we somehow solved the problem.
Here is a brief example of Bible truth that we often tell mechanically and without any practical intent.
“For if we live, we live for the Lord; And if we die, we die for the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. ”
In this simple sentence is found the whole mystery of man’s existence on this earth, of his abilities and at the same time of the driving force that propels his life.
The secret that God himself wants to pass on to all lies in a completely different angle of wisdom than it would seem at first sight, carrying with it a totally different mentality than that which we ordinary people are accustomed to put into The practice of daily life – where we are always looking for fulfillment and happiness in the moments of the moment.
The great mystery lies in the fact that somewhere, beyond space and time, beyond reality itself but closer than our own thoughts, lies eternity – an eternal life and much more complex than what we have here and now.
So if you want to become truly great, aim for this mentality, because preparing yourself to be a real man in the world of eternity from now on, you will surely be a great man down here, on the dark earth of sin. After all, the lack of real people in these turbulent times has its cause precisely in the gaping mentality of always aiming too close, and most often towards worthless things, in fanciful statements and not duplicated in practice.
