The Fiefdom of Me (#543) | The God Journey
Perhaps the most destructive residual effect of the Fall is that we are all drawn into living the "fiefdom of me", determining good or evil based on how it brings me joy or sadness. How much that affects us is seen by how often what Father does in his thwarts our expectations, reminding us that there is still so much about him we haven't begun to understand. That's why it's more helpful to live in the bits God has revealed of himself to us, rather than making assumptions about what we think he ought to do if he shared in the agendas of our little fiefdom. Instead he is inviting us into his kingdom, which can win us out of fiefdom and invite us into a Great Adventure.
