“When you’ve done it unto the least of these you’ve done it unto Me.”
Broken hearts, broken homes, broken lives, and broken connections with God.
It is our lust to satisfy ourselves that slowly seduces us to destroy that same ‘self’ which we held in such high esteem. It is only the tragedy of ‘self’ never transcending into unselfishness that so deceives us with the false freedoms we cherish above all else.
In one moment the threshold is crossed and we are lost.
Lost in the belief of our own power. Lost in the belief of our own strength and lost in our ability to recognize it.
We serve ourselves at the cost of others until there is only one unselfish person left who will intercede and sacrifice himself to endure our private hell.
Only God can go where all the doors are held shut by the enemy. Only God will stay even when the devil himself finally walks out on you. Only God will share in the fullness of your sufferings and never forsake you.
And ultimately it is only the lost ‘self’ that can lose everything and eventually tell, what they believed was a helpless God, to go to hell.
