God loves us, no doubt. He made us in his own image, with great pride and detail. But I think he gets a little chuckle watching us trying to make life all about us, the creation, instead if the creator.
I can’t think of anyone else who was raised from the dead, for whom the calendar changed from BC to AD, or for whom people centuries before his birth (even outside of the bible) predicted hundreds of exact details about his life. It SHOULD be all about him!
I don’t know if you know this but….He’s kind of a big deal.
If the story of the world was a movie…guess what? We would NOT be the main character! Shocking I know. The best we can hope for is a supporting role.
The problem is most of us are so busy in our own little world getting so wrapped up thinking our “movie” is so important we forget to be the best supporting role we can be. Making the absolute BEST, most amazing, perfect “movie” on our own would be absolutely worthless in comparison to being a supporting role to the only “main character” that ever was or ever will be.
Forgive me father for ever getting in the way of your plans. Forgive me for ever thinking my ways are better than yours. I pray I will make this short vapor of a life more about you, because only what is done for you will last.
