Trump? Brexit? Making Sense of It All.
June 24, 2016

Clearly there is a tension in society. That tension is manifesting with “hot button” issues and polarizing individuals that are now part of our daily lives. Thanks to the advancement of technology, we have an endless supply of opinions, headlines and images to keep things stirred up.

Everything all around us tries to get you and I to become angry, fearful, protective (and so much more, in a negative way). This has resulted in a clear dividing line that is being formed…navigating through this requires a wisdom and discernment that can only come from having the correct lens in which you view things.

So what lens are you looking through? Are you like the majority, that everything is based upon what we as individuals think is right or do you recognize that there is something even greater than having it your way? What sets the standard for how you live and make decisions?

Until we as individuals get to the place of not only knowing the correct answer to those questions, but actually showing it through our actions, that tension will never leave. That’s because it reveals the internal struggle we all are faced with…will you trust the One who created you or are you in rebellion to that.

So in reality what is happening is good news…because we are continuing to get the opportunity to choose which side we are on….the one that leads to righteousness or the one that leads to destruction. We all know what side is the one to choose, unfortunately the allure to doing what makes ourselves happy has such an attraction to it. It’s been that way since the beginning…and that makes this decision the ultimate “which side of history do you want to be on?”.

Choose wisely. There is only One WAY that leads to Life and Truth, the man Christ Jesus.
