Matthew 5:14 says "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” In a world where success is determined by power, position, and wealth, Christians are called to be different. To stand apart. To be a light. But is it possible that in this endeavor to make Christ more famous, we are subconsciously giving pieces of our hearts to the world? Is it possible that in our sincerest efforts to be different in big ways, we are conforming in small ways? We love this quote by CS Lewis. He put it perfectly when he wrote, “It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” What is it that we are fooling about with? Social media? Outward appearance? Zipcodes, entertainment, attention?
Is it possible that in the midst of day-to-day living, we have become far too easily satisfied with the weak offers of this culture? Take a moment to watch and reflect on our newest video, “Filled."
