We all want to have a “Good Life.” We aren’t even sure what “good” really means, but we wear ourselves out and make complicated systems and beliefs to achieve it. In reality, The Good Life is much simpler than we think.
It’s easy to love those who love you. But if we really want to change the world (and our lives) we need to learn to love those who choose to be actively against us. It’s illogical, but it’s the most powerful love the world has ever known.
Family. We love them, but we don’t always like them. They are our favorite people but some of the hardest to get along with. Is there a way to enjoy a healthy family dynamic no matter what stage of life we find ourselves in? There is… but it’s illogical.
Everyone goes into marriage expecting happiness and contentment. Sadly the outcome is often quite different. But it doesn’t have to be. There is a simple practice we can do to improve and enjoy not only our marriage, but all of our other relationships as well.
We all agree we need love. We all agree the world needs love. But we all have our own definitions of what love really is. Not too surprisingly Jesus gave us a definition of real love. Though his definition seems illogical at first… it is actually the most powerful and effective form of love we can experience.
Death. Impossible to avoid, escape, or prevent. Yet, we still try. Why? Maybe because something tells us this is not how things are supposed to be. Maybe we weren’t created for death? Jesus offers life that even death can’t end. Impossible, right? You’re invited to come and see.
When impossible situations come into our lives, our lack of control and power creates a fear that can be overwhelming. To make things worse, it often seems like God doesn’t care to do anything about what we are facing. Jesus, however, did the impossible to show us the depths of his power and care.
