Take a good, long, sober look at the world…and at yourself…

 

Would you rather squint your eyes at the lights at night and see a make believe wonderland? Or open them wide and see reality as it is?

Reality is what we need to see, as hard as it may be at times.

But there is a greater reality that we can’t see. One that we can hear…and taste…and receive in faith and hope.

Here’s another one that may shake you up. It’s radical stuff and no matter how many times I hear it the Old Adam in me just won’t buy it (that’s why I need to hear it again and again and again – we can’t live today on yesterday’s faith) :
