THE LAW OF DID YOU KNOW
There are three profound Laws of Life that impacts all of us, whether we are aware of them or not. These Laws of Knowledge make us realize there are definite facts, state of affairs, that exist in God’s universe.
THE LAW OF THE INCH declares the finish line is harder to cross than the start-up line. For all of us, the natural tendency is to coast or relax near the finish line. I have seen that truth in basketball. Yet, most games are decided in the last two minutes, and the good teams definitely push near the end. This is also seen in academics. The “A” students are on fire in the last two weeks of the term. Lastly, this is seen in business. The good ones squeeze out an extra 2-5% effort, seeking to transcend all other results. This law can help us reach the pinnacle, even surpass it.
THE LAW OF THE SACRED SILENCE has been proven over many centuries. Great achievers have mastered the intricate, invincible skill of maximizing quietness. It becomes a pause to reflect, a think tank of the soul. G.K. Chesterton defined it the best: “It is the presence of mind that makes me unaware of everything else.” For Fred Crowell, this is at least 20 minutes a day, meeting with my Master.
THE LAW OF FORGIVENESS makes it possible to “get out” of all kinds of prisons: the bitter prison, the anger prison, the greed prison, the selfish prison, the hopeless prison among others. Forgiveness is initiated by forgiving oneself, requiring a brutal honest self-inspection. Then we lose our seat of judgment, our place for the blaming of another. If we look closely enough, it appears all our problems are people problems. It is so good to be free, take the first step towards forgiveness. It is always our move to make first.
These laws show we can be “more than conquerors through Jesus who loved us” (Romans 8:37). To be impregnable, unable to be captured or broken, is more than just imaginable.
