If I pinch off the conduit of love for myself, then I can’t be a vessel of delivery to bring it to another. I am called to love myself and to love others.
We worship with our focus, fear or love. We will worship what we believe has power, even things we think it have more power than God.
Our giftings can be twisted & used against us if we don't remain dependent on God with them. For instance, a natural gift of observation can be perverted into damning focus.
Reactive living based on the whims of humanity is to lose our vital necessity in a sea of trivial insignificance, but we can live by design not default.
All of life is about our priorities and choice. It's living in my essentials is to find my God even as I walk in a world lost in nonessentials.

I want to show how sin and the coronavirus are extremely similar in nature. You don’t outrun a virus nor do you out maneuver sin.
