We normally swing between two separate gods, anger, and lust. We approach them as human beings and not as children of God. We try to fit together as human beings and find it difficult for we anger at our brother’s success or seek monetary gain over our brother. We can never truly be brothers under these terms.
What we forget that there is a God above who cares for us, who loves us. We forget that His Holy Spirit dwells within us. We forget that without recognizing that presence in our lives, we cannot be successful in anything we try, particularly brotherhood, particularly love.
We need to reunite as brothers and sisters of love to experience God’s true grace. Without this we will remain lost in our reverie of the seesaw life of anger and lust.
