“I don’t want to get involved…”
“What does that involve?”
“Whose involved with this?”
These are the typical comments you may get – or make yourself – when the issue of commitment comes up.
Most of us are so busy, so committed, so “involved” already – that one more request or consideration can put us over the top.
On the other hand, the opposite can be true. In some ways we may be more detached than ever before – watching the news and forming our opinions on our smart phones, carrying on our correspondence via email or a quick chat, using twitter to boil down a complicated discussion to a few hastily typed characters.
The kingdom of God calls us to something more – to being something more.
It calls us to be involved, deeply, passionately, lovingly with God, with our family, with fellow Christians, with non-Christians. We are called to be “in the world but not of the world.”
It can be a delicate balancing act but in a world where we are so polarized from one another, it is an essential part of being the family of God.
So, I invite you, this week, to consider what your current commitments are, where you are – or are not -or should be involved – to the glory of God.
