Do you ever wonder about that? I write so often about the evil in the world but in reality it is just as great a wonder as to why there is good, and beauty and admirable things. If the universe, the world and we ourselves are just accidents of nature, why is there anything that is praise worthy and pure and lovely? We don't need those things for survival. Why do we recognise and long for excellence? Why do we strive for the perfect?
Other animals don’t behave this way. Other animals do enough to make it to the next day and that’s it. Not so with humans. Why? I believe it's because at some level we know that we were created for more than this. I believe we know at some level that something more than this exists. We long for eternity. Its echo courses through our veins and compels us to reach beyond our grasp.
I love you Lord. Thank you.
