What if... selfishness were just a myth?

Self fish... Perhaps that’s what Peter Pan meant when he called Captain Hook a “Cod Fish?” Hehe Sorry, I found that amusing. Onward and forward!

If people weren’t so concerned with themselves all the time, I would say the world would be just shy of perfect. Wouldn’t you?

What would it be like to mention the word selfish and have everyone look at you like you were crazy? And I don’t mean the feigned ignorance look (also called denial). I’m talking they-have-never-heard-the-word-before look. Ever. Why would that be? Because it wouldn’t exist.

What if.. millions of years hasn’t been attained?

I’d like to see the proof of it. Not guess work or theories, but actual proof. Can anyone show it to me?

What if.. life was easy?

Easy, like a vacation that lasts forever. Ah, do we dare to dream?

Though, if we had everything handed to us on a platter and didn't have to do anything else every again, what would be the point of life? Part of life is going through the struggles. Facing the hard times head on. They make us stronger and teach us to endure. We become better people because of everything life throws at us -good and bad.

Think of something that happened to you a while back that effected who you have become. Even though it may have been hard to endure, looking back on it, would you have wanted it to be different seeing where it has brought you now? For me, needing an income was life changing. But, I've grown from it and it's shaped me into who I've become.

So, perhaps the question should be, do we really want life easy?

I'm reminded of the movie Wall-E and the ship in the sky where everyone sits around all day doing nothing but eating, sleeping, and talking to each other. Look where it got them. They were huge blobs, no offense to any of them. If that is what it would mean to give up life, I'll pass. I'd rather go through all the ups and downs than not feel anything at all.

Easy is not everything. Thank goodness for us, it's also not always available.

What if.. we can truly see God in planting a Garden?

My mom and I have finally gotten on the ball with gardening this year. Our little garden box is already filled with all types of wonderful thing -beets, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes. But, all we’ve done is put them in the soil and water them from time to time. They are grow all on their own.

Makes one wonder. We don’t make them take root and flourish. Sure, we can give them the proper environment to do so (something already provided by God), but it takes God to do the rest. After all, He’s the one that created them.

Gardens remind me of the Parable of the Sower in the four Gospels. But, that’s just the planting stage. What about the growing stage? The parallels to following Christ and just life in general are identical...

Once a seed is planted and has taken root, it still goes through so much. There will be storms that will rage around it and rains that will bombard it (though they like these more often than not). Heavy winds will try to rip it from the comfort of its soil. And often the sun can be so scorching, it will try to suck the life from them. Compost, or garbage, may litter it’s home, but still it keeps growing.

It takes all these things in stride and, as we should too, benefits from them instead of let's them wear it down to nothing.

Beyond “Go to the Ant,” we have the capacity to learn from the plant. Not only of God’s amazing Creation, but about ourselves. When life’s storms and messes surround us, we have the ability, like those plants, to grow from it all.

The question is, will we?
