You Are To Penetrate The World With Gods Goodness
Since life chose you to shine, and many things are trying to dull that shine, you must clothe yourself with the armor of tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Some people say, “I don’t want to get polluted by the world. I’m just going to isolate myself. I’ll build a wall and my own little culture.”
Isolation doesn’t work! How are you going to live that way, how are you going to inspire and make change that way?
The other extreme is imitation, which says, “Let’s be just like the world. We’ll dress like the latest pop star. We’ll say whatever we want about other people. We’ll have whatever values and goals popular culture tells us we should have. We’ll be no different from the world.”
That’s not what life wants you to be, either. Life doesn’t want you to give in to the lowest common denominators of society.
The answer is not isolation or imitation. It’s insulation and infiltration.
You are to be salt and light!
You are to penetrate the world with gods goodness!
