Interesting times, these days of ours!  Confusion is more likely the word du jour as our society struggles with the redefining of all things sacred.  One wonders as we wander, how did the seemingly straightforward, safe, path ever lead to this land of bewilderment?  Here’s one possibility:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to Me.  And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”  Hosea 4:6 (ESV)

Harsh!  However, spot on!  Ignorance breeds contempt, leading to arrogance, making one impervious to error.  Being warm, well fed, and relatively secure, we have by-in-large become much too busy and important for God; therefore we have dismissed Him – covertly of course! ... Hmmm?

Ok, for the sake of brevity... what do we do to change the environment?

Short answer... cull.  Most need (yes, need) to begin a culling in their lives.  Removing distractions that have diminished devotion.  Cull and refocus.

Life doesn’t happen in a vacuum.  Recommitting to the deep can draw others along, “deep calls to deep.”  It begins with personal decisions and choices – new directions that create their own current, drawing others in their wake.

Perhaps your devotion will give another the notion that they are missing something vital to their survival.  Who knows?  You may be the catalyst that brings divine change to your community!
