Reflection #2: Every situation has a spiritual reality.

 

As Christians, we understand there is a spiritual realm that surrounds us just like the physical environment we observe with our senses. Spiritual moments go beyond the “God moments” that we encounter while reading the Bible, praying, engaging in spiritual conversations, or attending a small group. Spiritual moments happen in business meetings and breakfast meetings, working in the yard, at the movies, family gatherings, while shopping or reading, on the shop floor, hospital, school, or heath club, during vacations, job interviews, or ball games.

[Challenge: As we acknowledge the spiritual reality, we have to be careful and avoid extremes. If we overemphasize the spiritual reality, it can lead to spiritual illusions; if we ignore the spiritual reality, it can lead to spiritual apathy.]
