A Thought

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’.  They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good.”  Psalm 53:1

You may have noticed by now that atheism seems to have become all the rage, the new thing to do.  For all the smoke these people blow about their absolute knowledge of nothingness, they seem more determined than ever to “prove” there is no God.  And their “proof”?  The believers’ inability to “prove” a case for God.

We don’t have to prove anything except by the way we live, the choices we make, and the words we speak.  These are evidence of the “hope that is within us”, but we do not have to “prove” anything except to the One who gives life and mercy and grace so abundantly.  And to Him we only prove that we trust Him to lead our next steps.

We do not have to take on more than we can handle; the Lord alone knows our limitations.  Our trust in Him, however, will be reflected in our belief in something much greater than the present moment.  For the unbeliever, this faith alone is more than they can handle, but this faith reflected in our lives is the compelling factor that causes many to draw nearer and learn more – or pull away altogether.  It is their choice, the choice they will be forced to live with; but if they are going to make an honest choice, let them choose according to the Truth that is revealed in us.  Let us be all He calls us to be.
