Logic is knowing what to use, how much to apply, how long to pursue and who to involve.
Logic is often avoided because people want to revere words like “faith” or “perseverance.”
Unfortunately, because we’re human beings, we often ignore logic–not out of some noble venture of scanning the heavens but rather, due to a stubborn nature or lazy disposition.
There are even those who contend that if they are true believers in a Divine Being, they must reject logic in favor of hope.
But in the Jesonian, we have the balance: it’s knowing when to apply the right measure of faithful effort.
For sometimes …
1. Let it pay out.
In other words, get your hands on it.
It’s not anybody else’s business but yours. It is in the scope of your ability. It is part of your daily bread. It is the talent that has been given to you, which needs to be multiplied. It is God, sitting back in his easy chair in heaven, waiting for you to take authority.
It is important to know when we are supposed to get our hands on it and mold it into something beautiful.
2. Let it play out.
Get your hands off of it.
Once it has become obvious that our input is counterproductive or useless, the quicker we abandon the present dilemma and move on, the better the chance that the Natural Order can play it out and good things can be born.
We spend too much time arguing at walls about why they are there. We are not called to knock down walls. We are to avoid the walls, and let Mother Nature tear down the barricade.
People ask me what I think about certain issues. Truthfully, I don’t. They are often anti-human, anti-kindness, anti-wisdom and certainly anti-logic.
My job is to let it play out and get my hands off of it.
3. Let it pray out.
Get God’s hands on it.
There is a gap between what we are able to achieve and what needs to be done. It is what the Good Book calls the “need” that God is prepared to supply.
God will always give us wisdom and strength, and sometimes it is His good pleasure to give us the Spirit to intervene on behalf of humanity.
When something is important and your hands cannot touch it, and other hands need to be removed from it, then put it in God’s hands.
This three-part anointing of logic will suit you well in everyday life–just by simply posing the question:
Whose hands are needed here?
