“I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.” Tom Schulman.
Things do change and we, if we are to make progress, must not only be willing to change, but anxious to make sensible change. Certainly, we must not attempt to change the unchangeable truths set forth in scripture.
Strange as it may seem, each era of time involves learning how the people we deal with think, what is their world view, how do they feel. Tons of paper is used daily as pundits, presidents, even pastors attempt to figure out life as perceived, (seen) by Millennials. Perhaps each person over sixty should spend some time standing on their desk top.
Christians, especially Christians, should learn and re-learn a truth taught by Jesus. Here’s the back story: Jesus and the disciples were getting settled in a boat to take a trip. The disciples were fussing because they saw they did not have enough food to go around. (The disciples most likely were Baptist because they worried a lot about food). Jesus said to them:
"Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?” Mark 8:18.
Jesus then reminded them of Him breaking five loaves of bread and feeding five thousand people and having twelve baskets left over! The principle was not on the food or lack, but on His ability to do abundantly above all that we need.
As we walk along life’s road, or sail the sea with Jesus, we must keep in mind, often via remembering, that He has worked miracles and still does for that matter. Doug Oldham used to sing; We've come this far by faith, Leaning on the LORD, Trusting in His Holy Word. He never failed me yet; Oh' can't turn back. We've come this far by faith.
