Deconstruction Dan

25 Apr

My friend Dan the artist told me about a book he’s been listening to about idols of the heart. The author said that the idols he was talking about always came back to the concept of debt. Somebody owes somebody something. Then he dropped a bomb on me. I’ve been screwed up ever since. Maybe I should call him Deconstruction Dan. Or, Dan the prophet.

Jealousy is telling God that He owes you something.

Unsatisfied with what you have, you complain that He hasn’t given you what you actually need. And so you look for what God owes you in the lives of others.

Guilty as charged.

Soon to come, some thoughts on how I’ve been trying to battle jealousy with God’s promises.
