Not Random

I am grateful that God is Love.

Love … does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. – 1 Corinthians 13:6-7

The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. – 1 John 4:8

I don’t know how people who have been taught that we are here by mere random chance manage to get out of bed in the morning. One thing about random occurrences (presuming there is such a thing); one can’t predict what is coming, or why (because under that belief system, there is no why). A second thought: random occurrences are impersonal. Also, the concept of personal responsibility is out. In fact, dispensing with personal responsibility before a personal Creator is the very point of this philosophy.

I will take rejoicing, and truth, and forbearance and belief, and hope and endurance over random any day. Thank You Father for making us in Your image so we have the capacity to love!
