Your capacity to comprehend the relevancy of a matter will depict the intensity in which you pursue that matter.
Food is necessary for our physical survival. Most people would say that it’s pretty relevant.
If you are hungry you will find something to eat because ingrained in your being you understand that it is essential to your survival.
If you don’t eat you will die, if you wait too long to eat you become hangry, and/or your physical well-being is impacted.
In either scenario, you are impacted.
Jesus said man must not live by bread alone but by EVERY WORD that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
To not set your heart on spiritual matters which leads to greater comprehension of the relevancy of spiritual matters will create a void in your life that you try to fill with other substances but none will suffice.
You may find temporary relief with the substances, relationships, vain pursuits, but eventually, everything built on those faulty foundations will crumble and you will be left with the questions:
Who am I? What is my purpose?
Which are both questions that are meant to assist us in realizing the importance of the divine nature from which we are predestined to live from.
As horrific as death is, it brings a beautiful realization of what’s important.
One of the most commonly reported occurrences of people on their deathbed are regrets of having not spent more time with those that they love.
I believe that common scenario answers the questions that our spirits desire that we answer.
Love and community.
The details of how that is articulated to the world become more clear as we keep the foundation set with those two beliefs.
The Mother Theresas, MLKs, Christ Jesus, and other people throughout history have been etched on the tapestry of eternity because of the intensity in which they cultivated those two beliefs.
Now their names seem to not fade from humanity.
