Welcome to this series of devotional thoughts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: The presence of an absence (vital spirituality)
The critical need: Live life beyond the temporal (Psalm 90)
Sometimes we struggle to ‘see the forest for the trees’. We have many expressions that suggest we are so preoccupied with the present that we fail to learn the lessons of the past, nor plan for the future. Today’s psalm entreats us to take a step back and see our lives and existence from God’s perspective. This mortal life which at times seems like everything, is such a brief segment of our total existence. Are we preparing for our future?
