On Tuesday I had the privilege of again sharing a devotion with the gathered staff at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY. It was a good time, and as usual, I was blessed by the large number of people who are zealously committed to what they are doing in the name of Christ. Something about the Museum stirs thankfulness for being one of God’s people.
On the way home, David Brown was driving and I thinking, a hard thing for me, but it keeps my mind off of the way Dave drives. My thoughts parked on the importance of really living a genuine life rather than faking it till you make it. As I mused, this old line from a great Russian writer crossed my mind:
“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov.
Ken Ham found this rare gem years ago and the Lord has used him to raise a team of Christ loving men and women who know their labor is not in vain in the Lord. If the Christian world would take the line from Dostoyevsky and muse on this provocative statement from Jesus Christ, many American Christian lives would be richer: “And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” Luke 12:15.
Alive or living?
