A great quote to think about as we enter a New Year:
When we face a tragedy, we sometimes act as if the tragedy is bigger than God—even though we would state that we don’t believe this to be true. We freak out over financial insecurity, while saying that God is trustworthy. We would state that God, who is Life, is bigger than death, but we’re terrified in the face of death. It is also obviously true that I don’t know everything and that dialogue is a gift to help work through ideas. We all get triggered—when assumptions seem to be at risk, when we begin to feel defensive, when an idea is disorienting, or for reasons that reside in our past or journey.
Wm. Paul Young, Lies we believe about God.
