How can we save the planet?
Have you noticed that there are troubles in this world? We see them in the home,
church, schools, politics and prisons to name a few places. We note it in mass
killings, percecutions, incivility, prejudices, and a bundle of other ills that afflict
our planet. We try to fix it with votes, edicts, laws, protests, and many other
collective means and wonder why it doesn’t improve.
Jesus told us the problem rests in each of our hearts. He spoke of self denial and
cross bearing sacrifice as the solution for us. He spoke of a paradox: “He who
saves his life shall lose it, but he who loses his life for my sake shall find it.” In
this surrender, and there alone, we can find what we crave.
"I'm still not getting what I want." That's the explanation given by a man when
asked why he plans to go to court to force churches in England to do something
they by conscience can’t do. Living for what I want or for what God wants for
me? This is the fundamental struggle human beings have been working through
since the beginning. With ourselves at the center of our lives there is no room for
our neighbor, none for our enemy, and none for the Lord. Because He is the
source of all joy, we must embrace the paradox: We must let go of our life and put
it in God's hands. By doing so, we will find life more abundant than we can
imagine. Certainly more than any law or legal action could ever bring.
The troubles won’t go away until we do. “He who loses his life for my sake shall
find it.” Let go and put it all in God’s hands to find life: abundant, joy filled life. It
could save the planet.
