In my childhood imagination, a whole new world was “outside” waiting to be explored.No one had to teach me how to play or to explore. Every child knows this instinctively. It is part of God placing eternity in our hearts.
Some people would like to portray spiritual freedom as a call to give up something, but it is more of a call to gain something greater.Writer C.S Lewis once compared spiritual blindness to a small child’s fixation to his sandbox.When his parents remove him from his sandbox for a vacation, he may kick,scream,kick and cry but all this ceases at the first sight of a beach,sand dunes and vast ocean horizons.Suddenly, the sandbox isn’t appealing.
The problem isn’t that we are seeking too much pleasure,we settle for too little. We are so infatuated with our life of little mud pies in the sandbox that we can’t see the vast oceans and continents God would have us explore.
King David wrote,”you will show me the path of life,in your presence is fullness of joy;at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”Psalm,16:11.
*True freedom requires a revolution!
