"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other." Luke 16:13
How easy it is to serve the master who constantly tempts us with fear, justification, rationalization, doubt, low self worth, contention, comparison, and apathy. He is so good at his game of destruction, that we think those feelings are real and valid. We cling to them, and hold up our shields against one another rather than working together as allies. *
His aim is to separate us from one another, which ultimately distances our hearts from the other master who constantly, gently calls to us to embrace love, compassion, faith, peace, courage, cooperation, unity, hope, and real, honest human connection. *
Every time I am afraid, every time I hold back and shrink, every time I compare myself to others or concede to less than I deserve, I am serving that master whose only desire is to destroy me. He knows my strength and potential. He knows how fiercely I love. He knows I seek to build a powerful family of Zion, and he is relentless in his designs to derail my efforts at every turn. No more! I know what I deserve and what I am capable of creating in this life. And I know God has prepared a man for me with the determination and courage to stand by my side, holding up our swords against this trickster in order to create and grow a powerful sacred union. I know this, because God has prepared me for him. Helpmeet, come!
