All of Life is Theological

“David’s response at Elah [in the David and Goliath story] teaches us that the great affairs of life are essentially theological. What we do with out lives, how we decide whom to marry, or not, what priorities we pursue, or whether we witness the gospel to friends and neighbors all reveal what we really believe about God. Regardless of our formal profession of faith, if we seldom act on the basis of biblical truth, we show that the world holds greater sway over our the minds and hearts than God does. If we shrink from doing difficult things for God, we show that we think him weak, distant, or indifferent.” -Richard Philipps
