If we only get to claim belief in gods we actually worship and worship is the use of resources to orbit around something/someone… who would your gods be?
I spend time working. I spend time sleeping. I spend time watching television. (By the way, have you seen "Ted Lasso?" SO GOOD.) I eat a lot of good food. I laugh a lot with my friends. I think, I write, I edit.
In the midst of all that, I spend a lot of time and energy trying to channel the presence of Jesus. I do this by shutting up. I do this by pausing mid-action and trying to remember him. I do this by considering what he might think or feel about my upcoming decisions. I let go of things that are distracting so that I can have more of him. I celebrate the things I have because that seems an appropriate response to gifts from him.
Apparently I have a lot of gods in my life, but I want my only God to be Jesus.
