There's a reason why "no other gods before me" is the first commandment. Apart from God, we strive to turn ourselves into gods -- the creation worships itself, not the creator.

Thought-provoking post, Heather.

Good word, Heather. This reminds me of a recent conversation in which some Christians I know were bemoaning the fact that evil men often succeed and appear to have no problems while Christians who love and serve God suffer. They chalked it up as one of life's mysteries and the by-product of a fallen world.

But I'm not so sure. If the highest good of man is to be conformed to the image of Christ, then the suffering Christian is the one truly blessed and the "flourishing" evil man has simply been left to his empty belief that the selfish shallows of life are all there is. To go deep with God -- deep into humanity as He created it to be -- is to truly live, not only in preparation for eternity, but also with fullness of joy and abundance of purpose right now.

Thanks for sharing. (Want to share some of that pie, too?)

Love, Jeanne
