Compass Points – Meeting God Every Day At Every Turn, Margaret Silf’s wonderful new book was introduced to you a while back. Today I want to share Compass Point #37:
It has been said that rules are needed by those who have lost their inner balance, and also by those who have not yet discovered it.
I wonder where we as the human race lie along this spectrum. Have we lost a wisdom we once possessed? Or have we not yet discovered it?
Does Jesus save us from the follies of the past, or does he lead and guide us toward a fullness of wisdom and love that still lies beyond us?
Are we offenders who need correction, or infants who need to be nurtured into maturity.
I think I’m a bit of both. What about you?
