What Makes the World Go ‘Round?
Short answer: Sacrifice.
People will flippantly answer, “Money!” Money makes the world go ‘round. But money is way toward self preservation and security. Mammon is a god. But the real difference maker is sacrifice. Sacrifice is counterintuitive to a power-driven selfish world. But sacrifice is the answer. And that is why Jesus is still the most influential person in human history. Lent will ask all of us to sacrifice our time and attention to pay attention to our souls. It is time to reflect on our level of selfishness and reflect on our grasp of God-shaped world – do we see the hand of God everywhere we go? Do we have the eyes, hands, voice of Jesus?
