SAUSAGE STUFFED SHELLS

April 27, 2013

I have learned an important distinction in life for how to think about what I think about. We have our loudest desires. When we experience difficulty, our loudest desire is usually just for the pain to stop. Make the problem go away.

Sometimes my loudest desire fools me into forgetting about my deepest desire. In the above situation, my deepest desire is for Christ to grow and shape me into a person more like him, which he does through suffering. Although, I just want pain to go away and for life to be easy, I can still experience joy in suffering because my deepest desire is for God to make me more holy.

There’s lots of examples of this. My loudest desire is to eat all the desserts everywhere. My deepest desire is to maintain a semblance of a healthy body weight. (And thus, a transition to really tasty sausage stuffed shells).
