A discovery of what God knows of us
Traveling through mountains in a car, we see the forest as an abstract green blur. Hours of such scenery can be monotonous. But getting out to explore, we find dewdrops on violets and lizards on rocks. Worlds of intricate detail, previously undetected, are clearly seen.
Budgets, social commitments, the health of our bodies, and other such things, occasionally seem to take us for a ride. Sometimes worries, sometimes pleasures, these "drivers" operate under the assumption that man is material and that his well-being and happiness are governed by the economy, health laws, etiquette, or chance.
When we go along with this assumption, we miss what is unseen by matter-based thinking: the realm of Spirit. In order to find the spiritual realm, which Christ Jesus spoke of as the kingdom of heaven within us, we have to get out of the car, so to speak, and leave it behind. There's something radical, adventurous, urgent, humble, about this step. It is a search for God, a striving, a prayer.
