A couple of blog posts caught my attention today, both very different but both got me thinking.
Jim has written a post called Can God be a Distraction? in it he asks if figuring out and comprehending God is more of a distraction than value added. Here’s a little snippet from it:
So, I’m wondering what would happen if we became less concerned about figuring things out and comprehending God, and instead became more in tune with those deep feelings of life within us, whenever and however they happen. Maybe the premise of comprehension was never meant to be the focus. Jesus seemed to keep it pretty simple, even using children as an example to follow. A child enjoys the moment and isn’t terribly analytical about any of it. Maybe these deep feelings and the responses they stimulate and inspire is the kingdom of God and no further analysis is needed.
