Is there nothing more to realize about the things of drama
than comedy… found to be able to laugh at man for his way
but then to become aware we are laughing at ourselves for
the silliness of our own actions… the things we do or say,
or to the tragedy of not being able to, found to despise others
for what they can do or what they have; to then covet or envy,
this is the place anger and hatred coexist; to think so little of
another and seek to elevate oneself, esteemed deceits so empty,
can there be nothing more to this life than to seek to aggrandize
what little we can accomplish with more to be seen or even said,
odd we take God so lightly when [in reality] it is His accomplish-
ments that truly matter, without Him [found] our works are dead.
The way up is down! I’ve heard this more and more lately and have come to realize the profundity of this statement is so countercultural to the times we live in but so true. To seek to be exalted we must be humble… contrition to what we are is to become more like a servant than anything else. Jesus showed us all this same lesson by becoming a servant to God the Father, to fulfill the will of God in His life… and offer Himself up for all mankind as the sacrifice for all time. There was no more need to seek and propitiate [appease] God [as the pagans do] but to believe God for what was done on our behalf… to die for our sins is what Jesus did. It is for us to know the price of our sins has been paid and to accept belief in the one who paid them for us is the ongoing cost we must address with seriousness, humility and love. We have been given His grace… let us not disgrace His efforts or those of another different than ourselves, even when hated for what we believe.
Matthew 23:12 KJV And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
1 Peter 5:6 KJV Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
