31. rant update (3 weeks later)
“What’s the point?”
That was the big question from my previous blog entry. The answer turned out to be simple and straightforward – as the best answers always are. First off, I have to give credit where credit is due. Steph set my head straight, reducing my self-righteous stance to a spoiled hissy-fit.
Anyway, the point of being good and doing right in a world that doesn’t appreciate it is this: this world, this life, this injustice is temporary. As dark as this tunnel is, it ends and on the other side is redemption.
In other words, suffering the injustice of this world is insignificant when placed alongside eternity. Trust God eve if it seems like God is letting you down; do your best to listen for that still small Voice through all the noise and the whitewash; persevere, persist; pray even if all your requests come back doughnuts. Put up with anything/everything because Act 3 is going to make it all worthwhile.
I’m not going to say that this makes it all irie but it does wear down the barb of meaninglessness.
