I’ve seen people come up with some of the strangest spiritual concoctions. Particularly it seems rather prevalent on the internet along with a lot of other strangeness.
Now, I’ll be the first to say, life can get pretty confusing. I mean, how many times have all of us, in the midst of a crisis, thought, “Wow, if I’d just like a clear answer. If I could just know exactly what to do right now I’d give anything?”
So off in search of that elusive insight people sometimes develop a sort of mix and match spirituality. A bit of Buddhism here. Mix in a pinch of eastern mysticism. Sprinkle liberally with some new age. Then hang a Native American spirit catcher from your rear view mirror.
The only problem is, well, come on really?
When you think about it logically how could it work? They’re making up their own recipe.
Jesus spoke about some who listened to him, “For they look, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.”*
Yet, God does offer to guide us with clear direction.
He does though when we truly seek the answers from him in his way.
*Matthew 13:13 (NLT)
