Where do we Belong?

Jesus needed times of retreat; so do we. It may not be a physical retreat by taking a few days away in a specially designed place, but even a short period when we set aside the trials and worries of the world and concentrate wholly on God, will be refreshing. Jesus spent time alone with His Father so that He could return to His friends and belong with them again.

We belong to the heavenly realm as well as belonging in this world. Time spent with God in the former will help us belong to the latter. As well as the real problems we have to cope with, there are ethical problems and opinions we have to navigate. What do we think about this and that and more importantly what does God want us to think about this and that? We belong to the world, whether we like it or not, but also need the wisdom of the other world.
