This is great. No doubt. There is a war going on right now, so we can all relate to this. "Whatever you do, do to the glory of God." This is a great quote and really fits struck me. Whether we are meant to fight, fight to the glory of God. If we are meant to learn, learn to the glory of God. If we are meant to work, work to the glory of God. Everything can be translated and connected to glorifying God. If it is my calling to be learning right now, then why shouldn't I keep on learning during war time? I would say that I should keep on learning. I need to be prepared for the real world and the real questions that outsiders will ask. Everything in life helps you understand God better. It helps us connect to God.
There is always trouble in the world, there is always people who need help, there are always people hurt, there are always things needing change. So this is really not really a different situation than the world at any point. To have a better understanding of others we should learn. We should learn culture, we should learn religion, we should strive to understand as much as we can. Adriana said today that if we aren't sweating while we are studying, we aren't studying hard enough. Obviously, that was kind of a joke, but it was definitely memorable. Those who are going to learn, will learn no matter what. During war, during peace, during tough times, during easy times.
Another main point that I really liked was the fact that there is no middle ground for Christ. Our class had many different ideas, but I guess I feel that in everything we should glorify God. Life seems mundane and some aspects are boring and lifeless, but it all is important and relevant. There is only one truth, and that is Christ. There is no room for anything else. In the same way that there is no middle ground with Christ, there is only one answer. We are either glorifying God or not.
That is something important that I should focus on. Because I feel like when I try to glorify God, I do a great job. But other times, I completely forget and act completely stupid, and don't glorify God in the slightest.
