We are often skeptical about God making the mountains tremble and the oceans roar. Our deeper understanding of the natural world makes us a little arrogant about things. We “know” that it’s really tectonic plate movement that causes that. The heavens don’t really shake, so we think. We “know” all about stars and gas giants and planets.
Often, we judge our lives, their successes, and failures, upon the frailties of created things. Sometimes we value our lives based upon career, money, gathered things. Sometimes we value our lives upon people. Regardless, in the face of the Kingdom of Heaven, they are only temporary.
In a time such as this, when society seems so unstable, it is good to understand that the Kingdom of God is stable, everlasting, and unshakable.
1) What is something created or temporary you find really important? Why?
3) What’s “shaking” you right now? How can you put that on the sure foundation of the Kingdom of God?
Lord, help us be assured that we are firmed rooted on your foundation. Amen.
