Wonder about all kinds of things: like "Why is there no mention of the creation of water"?
Did water precede creation?
One of my ongoing-for-years puzzles has been how to overcome self centredness in myself.
Its a horrible trait
It seems the more I hate it, the more I see of it in myself.
What to do!
I woke at 5.21 this morning with the answer so vivid that I laughed out loud at my sheer idiocy.
Then blushed in the early light - as I saw how my very quest is the most self-centred of all.
'Belzebub cannot cast out Belzebub' the bible states, very logically.
It might also say (it doesn't, but the reasoning is the same) "Self cannot cast out Self"
So all my efforts to put down self, have been futile because all the time I was still (not realising) focussing on "me"!
I realised this morning that I was looking for qualities in myself that are only found in Christ.
He is the only One who is complete in every way.
All the qualities we long for, we can admire in Him.
And as we do, He will do any changing to be done, all unnoticed by us.
