We may be living in such a depraved generation when everyone’s focus is inward to their own wants and desires. Even avarice and gluttony fail to satisfy our own growing voracious cancer! No longer is there a sanctuary from our self.
Is there a true sanctuary that removes your fears and offers hope? There is only one genuine “fear” that every person faces that is common to all of mankind – the fear of death. The choice is whether we will choose to make that fear a stumbling stone or stepping stone in our relationship with God. Fact: no earthly alliance can defeat the fear of death.
Unlike Disney and Universal Studios where fantasies come true but there is a cost to get in, God’s sanctuary city requires only a smile to affirm your faith in God’s grace to enter.
How about you? Have you built your own walls to hide behind out of insecurity and pride of “self” or do you know the way into God’s sanctuary where security comes from humility?
God’s true refuge or sanctuary has the unlimited capacity of accommodating all who seek his grace, peace, and mercy. His high tower likewise clarifies our proper place and purpose in life and restores our focus on God’s priorities, diminishing our selfish priorities.
Genuine Sanctuary is found when we teach our children and grandchildren the love of reading. A thirst for books sharpens the sword that will serve them well in the battle against ignorance and dependence upon others to shape their beliefs.
