I feel good about how I spent my day. I got up early and read in my office at home, I snuggled with my wife when she got up, I checked in with all the financial institutions and obligations we interact with as a family and updated them, I talked on the phone to my sister, I made arrangements to connect with other friends I’ve neglected in past weeks, I took unwanted books to the local used books store, I took my wife to lunch, I cleaned my office at work, and I spent considerable time blogging – just like I wanted to.
As I’m writing these things, I cannot help but notice that “I” am the subject of each clause. It may seem then that I consider myself to be the center of the universe. Thankfully, I do not. The Lord has opened my eyes to see that He is the center of all things. He is the creator and sustainer of all life. He alone is worthy of praise and adoration. Further, if there is anything good in me, it is the result of Christ and Christ alone (not excluding the other persons of the unified Godhead).
