There are exclusive people who presume to be in control of what they regard as the ultimately exclusive club; heaven itself. They presume to define who can get into heaven and who cannot get into heaven. They may claim that someone else has set the terms, and that they are merely announcing the terms which they know for certain; but it is not always so clear that they have not played any role is setting up the terms. What does the Lord require of us but that we do justice, love mercy and walk HUMBLY with our Lord? People who are preoccupied with issues of control find this requirement difficult to fulfill. They seem to think that they are the Lord and that people should live on terms set by those preoccupied with issues of control. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
