 So, I’m sitting here (meeting room table) and the lyrics “breathe, breathe in the air, don’t be afraid to care…” (Pink Floyd) come into my mind.

All week one of the themes/mottos I keep hearing coming from my mouth is that it’s easy to ‘not care’… ‘caring’ takes practice, attention, patience, revision, etc. ‘Caring’ takes process, guts, intention, etc.  This train of thought led me to question what ‘care’ is, without Christ. Care without LOVE… and my immediate ‘brain-storming’/reflections perceived that when all is said and done ‘care’ without Christ may pacify or bring temporary resolution..(and possibly harm), but ultimately is limited/flawed in that it is fallible and can not exist or withstand any long-lasting conflict with the world without becoming one with it. Without the Spirit of God, love and care can also easily become self-serving, manipulative, and controlling. I’ve written all of this because there are so many imposters and so much to be distracted by. My bro is going to college soon, naturally I wanna see him ‘sky-rocket’ –>quickened by that wisdom that only comes with the teaching of the Holy Spirit, because even with the guidance of the Spirit, I myself am guilty of not always doing that which is expedient for me or in light of my relationship with Christ.

Lord, I thank You for bearing with us in our hard-headedness… leading us in righteousness–> softening our hearts to hear Your voice, and devote ourselves to You in obedience.
