There really is more to this life than you’ve been told. We’ve been demanding our way since day one. “I want a spouse that makes me happy and coworkers that always ask my opinion.” “I want weather that suits me and traffic that helps me and government that serves me.” Self-promotion. Self-preservation. Self-centeredness …
“It’s all about me.”
They all told us it was, didn’t they? And we took them up on it. We thought self-celebration would make us happy. But believing that has created chaos — noisy homes, stress-filled businesses, cutthroat relationships. We’ve chased so many skinny rabbits, says Max Lucado, that we’ve missed the fat one: the God-centered life.
