When I begin to try and make myself the Noun again, the Lord always reminds me of C.S. Lewis’s “The Problem of Pain” so I can shift my focus back to where it belongs.
I’m not condoning selfishness, as it flies in the face of everything Jesus taught. Instead, I’m advocating for grace to be shown and self-assessments to be had. I want to encourage you to start by looking more meaningfully at your own behavior. From there, I wonder if that paradigm shift will lead each of us to see other people’s actions in a slightly different light.
