We humans are a screwed up bunch.
Scripture clearly states we’re created with God’s nature (Genesis 1:27). Yet we’re also cursed with our own inner Charlie Sheen (Genesis 6:5). Don’t think that tension goes unnoticed as BeyondTheRisk 2.0 goes live today.
I write to express what God’s doing in me. To create something beautiful. To inspire action. To challenge perspective. To share something I value with you.
But I also write to please my inner narcissist. Because I want you to like me. For your approval. So you’ll make me feel valuable. So you’ll know who I am.
Just keeping it real.
Everything we create has the ability to elevate God and serve humanity, or become another monument to me.
We have to engage that tension with a lot of honest confession and repentance (and a good dose of loving community). It seems the only other option is to never create anything at all.
Where do you feel that tension?
