‘Live for Greatness’ – Live for GOD

Friday, May 25, 2012

Having just written two blogs on the reality of God in our world, especially the digital world that so many of us now actually populate to a ridiculously high level:

Follow the moon beam – everyone is special in God’s eyes

God can’t be found in the computer screen, even less in the smart phone - just look skyward!

it came as quite a shock to read the advert on the back of a newspaper’s feature magazine lying next to me.

This magazine featured a world renowned watch with the caption, “Live for Greatness”.

Oh what a clash! The secular world screaming for us to buy a watch so that we can – “live for greatness”!

What could possibly be the greatness to which we are invited through having this watch on our wrists? May be we could look – COOL!!! Whatever this may mean?! May be we could look wealthy?! No doubt wealth is the answer to the meaning of life – not! So could there possibly be any other reason?

Facetiously, maybe we could wear the watch and time the time we spent with what is the most important existence in this world? But time is irrelevant to this reality! OK – let’s lose the watch! It is not important!!!

Let’s encompass God fully! Let’s live for greatness - for God - really!!! Let’s let God give us the time of our lives!

Nothing can beat the time we spend with God – nothing! God is especially present in our time with our spouse. He is especially present in our time with our family and friends. God is present when we live in the present. He is present in our time with nature, in fun times, in everyday times.

However, God is most especially present in our time with Him!!! Prayer!!! Silence!!! GOD!!!
