No Darkness, Loneliness, or Abandonment – Wisdom Unplugged
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1520 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Charles Kingsley, and it is, “It is not darkness you are going to, for God is light. It is not lonely, for Christ is with you. It is not an unknown country, for Christ is there.”
No Darkness, Loneliness, or Abandonment
During times like we face throughout the entire world with the pandemic, unrest, and polarization between people, we may feel that we are shrouded in darkness, in loneliness, and instability in the world. From a purely humanistic perspective, there is some truth to this.
As Christ-followers, though, we have no reason to feel in this manner. First, we are part of God’s kingdom that will last forever. We do not need to depend on earthly government structures for our security. We are sojourners in this world, as citizens of an eternal dwelling. We do not need to feel lonely because we are one with Christ who promises never to leave us or forsake us. We don’t need to be shrouded in this world’s darkness because God has created all the lights of heaven, illuminating our hearts.
Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”
For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come.
