Thought for today – 05/17/2011

While I applaud the God-given desire to engage our culture, how much better it would be if we were first transformed. Then we could demonstrate to the world true, God-breathed creativity instead of cleverness, and familiarity with the Trinity instead of an obsession with proving how well we can read the latest cultural trend. We cannot compensate for being strangers to God by becoming friends with the culture. On the contrary, we become our culture’s truest friend by becoming more aware of the God who not only engages our culture but also inspires, critiques, and transforms it.
~Gary Thomas, The Beautiful Fight
