IS GOD playing a cosmic Chess game with our lives? Some ‘teachers’ paint a picture of Jesus sitting across from Satan, countering each other’s moves.
Uhhh . . . don’t think so. The created is not equal to the Creator.
(Besides, Jesus already won.)
But we DO play games . . .
The Game of Thrones takes place in my heart. Who gets the throne? Whichever side I surrender to. We each head up our own Operation, and life is no Candy Land.
Of course, there is Risk involved! Armies are constantly advancing and retreating, taking territory and having to give it up. All this transaction happens according to who and/or what we make alliances with in our minds and Hearts.
In the long run, WE decide who or what gets the Monopoly on our thoughts. Whoever reigns my mind controls my actions. That can be Trouble.
My spiritual understanding will unScrabble only after I humbly submit my ways to the omniscient God of Heaven, who holds the Key to the Kingdom.
So get a Clue! There are Ghosts in the Graveyard, and playing Charades gets us nowhere good.
If you want to learn How to Host a Murder, just throw your Bible and prayer out of your life. The Consequences won’t please you. You’ll end up on a Trivial Pursuit, and your Outbursts might get you sent to a Psychiatrist.
My friend Simon Says going to church is Taboo, but I question his Scruples because he’s the one missing out on the Treasure Hunt of Life. The truth might Boggle his mind. Sorry! Besides, I’ve spent more than Seven Minutes in the Closet with Perfection, and my Concentration is now bound to the thief of hearts, Jesus Christ.
Playing for real.
