Letting Gravity Do Its Work
Letting Gravity Do Its Work
May 8, 2013
Mike Metzger has a
terrific reflection over at The High Calling on God’s plan for the world—and how that works itself out:
in today’s world means seeking the prosperity of people in everyday businesses and schools and neighborhoods and sports leagues – you know, regular workaday institutions, not just “religious” ones. We build beautiful companies and organizations where people can flourish – experience shalom – in workaday life. This is also how we solve one of our biggest problems. Our definition of reality is rarely taken seriously because we rarely seek the peace and prosperity of everyone in everyday life. We don’t trust gravity, i.e., reality, to do its work. We don’t see shalom as “seeking the lost.”
