Life makes it that we are always pushing, all based on the fear that we will miss out. What does God want for us in this world where getting ahead means you push.
Jesus longs for those who will see with their eyes, and hear with their ears. Jesus longs for us to gain insight, an understanding that is almost an "a-ha" realisation in our lives. We can train ourselves to regularly get insight, which will enable us to move into deeper spiritual understanding.
Life is scary. There is reason to be afraid when we look at the world around us, when we contemplate the future. Even when we consider our own limitations, there is reason to be afraid. What must you and I remember when we are afraid?
