Biologos is a wonderful tool that helps hone our understand of the world and God. However, how do you relate to the Divine, other than studying His creation? Do you have devotions? If so, what kind? I just read a C S Lewis quote that is convicted me. I get so busy in my work that I forget to meditate:
There have been men before now who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God Himself … as if the good Lord had nothing to do but exist! There have been some who were so occupied in spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ. Man! Ye see it in smaller matters. Did ye never know a lover of books that with all his first editions and signed copies had lost the power to read them? Or an organiser of charities that had lost all love for the poor? It is the subtlest of all the snares. (The Great Divorce).
I’m curious how you (scientists, pastors, linguists) who are very busy interact with God. It would be good learning for me.
At present, I am trying to do better than before. Sometimes, at the worst, I’ve gone as long as a week without cracking a Bible! Right now, I try to read parts of the Bible periodically in the day; and my wife and I read together the daily devotions from Skye Jethani (With God Daily), besides church (our couples Sunday School, of about 20-30 folks, helps us the most emotionally) and praying with our children. We’ve used Our Daily Bread in the past, too. It does seem that my attitude improves when I am more faithful with this.
