So I woke up in the middle of the night and this thought came to me...'what if we keep messing up and getting it wrong because we're looking in the completely wrong place?' You know, like that job you thought would be the start to a new career, or that move you thought would be the start to a new life, or that relationship you thought would be the start to all your happily ever afters...
We have a longing deep inside of us, and we think a job, or a new house, or a new car can fill that longing. But, when we get what we thought we needed, we realise that that longing is still there. Like the young woman / man that wants to get married, or the graduate that longs for a job, or the married couple longing for a child. A husband / wife won't satisfy you. And neither will a job, a new car, or even a child.
Take love, for example. What we all desire is someone that will love us unconditionally, i.e. with all our faults and flaws. That person that will tell us that we're perfect just the way we are, and need not change a thing (you know, the stuff that makes us who we are). Human beings kinda suck at that. It got me thinking about the cross. You know, Jesus dying and all. He didn't have to, but He did. He knew many would still not accept Him, but He went ahead and died for them anyway. Now, that's what I call unconditional love. So, if you're still looking, well, look no further.
Happy Easter everyone.
p.s. He didn't stay dead by the way.
