The magnitude of God’s glory, Paul writes, is so great, “things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard … of all that God has prepared for those who love Him.” (2 Corinthians 2:9) C.S. Lewis likens the comparison to a ghetto child playing in a street mud puddle, having no concept of making sand castles on a clean ocean beach. We use superlative words for God like awesome, majestic, glorious, and holy, but still have little concept of the depth of what these words mean. Too often we content ourselves with the toys and trinkets of this life, not realizing that there is so much more for us in a life in harmony with God through Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness…”(Matthew 6:33) He would not have said it if He didn’t mean that it was possible. We can live at least a beginning of Kingdom life even in the midst of this broken world. The sand castles are real.
