FAITH IS LIKE NOT CARING
My statement following is extremely over-simplified, but this came to mind: Apathy is not caring, and Faith is not caring. Apathy is not caring because one simply doesn't care. Faith is not caring, because one knows that God is wise, good, sovereign, and worthy. Obviously apathy and faith are entirely opposite terms, and even with faith we do "care" and are "concerned". Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac and he cared about Isaac and would be painful to have him die at his own hands; but when it came down do it, He cared more about trusting God, knowing God could raise him from the dead or provide a substitute...more than caring about 'his own understanding and preferences'. I hope no one lives in apathy, but I hope your life is filled with faith, that whatever thy lot God has taught thee to say, "it is well, it is well with my soul."
