we struggle to exist, to matter, to be remembered, to love and be loved, to know and to be known.

fame. knowledge. wealth. acceptance and approval of our peers. helping others. sacrificing our own comforts and desires. we want to know that all this counts. that there is a ‘high score’ at the end of it all.

but if there is no God. none of this. none of this matters. ultimately everything burns away in fire. or even worse, encased in ice.

but if there is God. then everything matters. you can truly live with a meaning. you can know and be known. you can love and be loved.

——————-

hundreds of paper boats. or few sea-worthy vessels.  hundreds of half hearted luke warm christians or twelve committed disciples. you can love the whole world only if, and only by loving your neighbor.
