I am reading a book by David W. Henderson called "Culture Shift: Communicating God's Truth to Our Changing World". What a wonderful and helpful book. Henderson referred to a saying on a t-shirt that said: "Galileo was wrong. The universe does revolve around me!" I know that my cat believes that, and it is probably reflects (or come close to) the attitude of millions in our self-absorbed nation.
The solution to this "I am the center of the universe" mentality is a passionate love for Jesus. Only he can set us free from ourselves so that we can truly live.
Have a great day. Pastor Bryan
