I’m a Soul Man - Interdependence
Greetings Dear Reader,
We are at least two parted beings. Some think we are three parted. Whether we are body, soul, and spirit or body and soul we are more than just flesh and bones. If we do not accept this then we ignore a vital interdependence.
Many people attempt to feed the spiritual part of the being whilst refusing to acknowledge the existence of it. People feed the spirit by trying to be moral or good. The problem is that the soul still has a malady without faith and redemption.
If I live as if I do not have an eternal soul then I will put things ahead of its care. Morals and values become preferences not necessities. Spiritual truths become opinions not mandates from God. The lines of right and wrong become unclear.
I must assure that I see everyone as soul in need of love and care. If I proceed from the eternal nature of my congress with others then I am likely to be more careful what I say and do. If I see my own being as eternal then I am likely to be more particular what I do when I am alone.
The body is fed by the soul much more than by food and drink. If I tend the soul then the body benefits. The opposite is true in a lesser way. The nature of things is that we are eternal. I want to do and say things that echo positively through the eternal. In that I must be always vigilant.
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.”
