Entertaining Angels – Opening Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
During Star Trek Six: The Undiscovered Country Kirk and McCoy are accused of murdering the Klingon Chancellor. His daughter makes a comment about the arrogance of humans in talking about their rights. As I recently re-watched this movie it struck a very deep chord in me.
One of our greatest errors is our arrogance. We think we are the IT factor in our world. We believe for the most part it is about us. In some aspects we are correct. For the most part, however, we are creations of a being whom we do not completely understand. There are other creations that watch us and wonder about us.
Before you think I have gone off the rails more so than usual please hear me out. God made us for a purpose. We are very important to him. We, however, are not all that gets his attention and energy. Things are playing out on a universal stage and we have very little insight into how that is playing out.
We think we “know” when our best knowledge is a slightly educated guess. We think we understand but how can that be when we so often leave out the designer from the design. We think we are wise when we often act foolishly.
I want to take a look at how we are viewed and how we should view those who watch us. We are not alone in the world and whether we wish it or not we interact with other creations. If you are already dismissing this because you do not believe it, perhaps I at least can entertain. Walk with me Dear Reader. Share your thoughts. I promise to treat you well.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
