Everything Belongs

John 10:16

“I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd.”

We all start out in life believing that we are at the center of the universe. It’s all about me. Sadly, some people never seem to get beyond this perspective (delusion). The ego feeds on being separate from others…inflating its own self-importance…always judging who is right and who is wrong (and of course…the ego is always right!). The ego wants me to believe that I am on the winning side…that I am in the “in” group. Of course, that would mean that someone else is not. When we exclude we are clearly not being Christian. Jesus insisted that all will be one flock and that He will be the one shepherd. This is what the kingdom of God is about. For this to happen…egos will have to diminish. As John the Baptist said, “Jesus must increase; I must decrease” (John 3:30).  Ask yourself: “How can I change to be more merciful and accepting that everything belongs?

One Response to Everything Belongs

  1. Dear fellow blogger!

    I invite you to read my blog post about the Kingdom of God:

    “The Bible says that we should put it first in our lives (Matt. 6:33) and that we should be preaching it to others (Luke 9:2). We pray for God’s kingdom to come on a regular basis, but if someone were to ask us: “Please, explain to me exactly what the Kingdom of God is”, would we know what to say?”
