there is more

Thursday September 24th, James 3: 1What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? 2You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. 3When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. I believe no one is pure evil, though I must admit that some of the actions of ISIS come pretty darn close, and I believe everyone will sooner or later come to dwell at the foot of the throne of God.  Some may seem to have a pretty long road ahead of them, but eventually, the heart will succumb to love, and faced with our own reality, we will also be embraced by the reality of God's love. How often do we find that in striving for what we think we want, we find ourselves duped into following the path to nowhere?  It is when we seek for the good of all of creation that we begin to see our part and our path in this journey of life.  Seeking only for the self makes for a pretty small world, and a pretty miserable one at that.  There is no smaller package than a person all wrapped up in themselves.  So open your eyes and your heart and let the love of God flow through you.  God’s love is like the manna of old, if you hoard it, it rots.  If you share it till it is all gone, there is more there tomorrow.
