I admit that I am a “glory” junkie.
Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than themselves. They want to participate in something that is of greater significance than just the confines of their own personal life.
As evidence I suggest the recently concluded 2017 World Series of baseball between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros. Hundreds of thousands of people polarized toward one team or the other and got crazy in cheering for that team to be the best baseball team of 2017. Personally, I’m disappointed that the Chicago Cubs were not in the Series, but take consolation in the fact that the Cubs won the Series last year and made baseball history richer for it.
The fact is that the Creator crafted human beings to live for something transcendent … a state of being beyond and outside of the ordinary range of human experience.
