The Disturbed Ant Bed

23 Jul

Self-centeredness transforms our lives into a long and frantic attempt to save ourselves, to create legendary lives that will at least hint at wholeness. It produces a culture that looks like a disturbed ant bed, a culture that eventually leaves us worn out and sad and empty and headed for the nearest pub. All the while, an utterly glorious day—filled with staggering beauty and irrepressible joy—has been created for us by the overflowing philanthropy of the Triune God.
