I had to grow up & mature, jump through hoops, some of flaming fire with a bamboo stick of encouragement or an inked stamp of approval. The older I have gotten the more I have come to see that many adults are nothing but children. They are young at heart & young in the brain, juvenile & delinquent in nature.
There are many things that education cannot change, there are many things that correctional facilities cannot change. They talk about mapping the brain but the human heart deep in the soul is very much a mystery.
There are some things we can master, others not, we can’t even get close, try as we might. The Alpha & the Omega [Jesus] knows our circumstances, our desire to brake/break free. We think there is freedom in fame, money or friends, knowledge, culture,sex, drugs, drink or reclusiveness. But in truth there is only freedom in Christ, where one becomes many.
Underneath we are all the same & in need of great salvation, rough enough is not good enough in surgery or on the road or economics or science & maths. There are many things we cannot be casual about.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor/favour.” Luke 4:18-19.
