What Might Happen Philosophy ~ Opening Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
I was struck the other day by how many things we do because of what might happen. From insurance to forbidding bare feet we create laws and systems based on what could happen or what has happened. I am concerned that we are building an illusion of control that takes the place of faith and following.
I am not saying that insurance is a bad thing. Rather, it is a good thing that we pay for and hope to never need. What I do need to ponder is what the line is. If I base my life philosophy on what bad thing might happen then I am in danger. I cannot live by faith if I do not.
As I walk through this I want examine things both social and political that are also matters of faith. I want to make sure that I am not limiting my compassion and love because of what people might do. The idea of hedging against harm is good but the replacement of faith is not. This will be brief but I hope your conversation extends it Dear Reader.
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.”
