I struggle with the line between blasphemy and welcoming God in to all aspects of my life. On one hand I would like to keep God in the front of my mind and on the tip of my tongue and offer up all the aspects of my day/life to him. I want to ask him for help with my struggles and praise him for my triumphs, but I sometimes wonder if what I’m doing is blasphemous. The following is an example that is not from my life but is from a Catholic podcast that I have recently discovered. I don’t’ drink but this example illustrates my point.
When these gentlemen drink the exclaim “Cheers Jesus” or “What should we drink to? Raise our glasses to Jesus” Another example is t-shirt that IU saw at Wal Mart that said “Ya’ll need Jesus!” The sentiment is true, but the wording is a little funny. Is this welcoming Jesus in to all aspects of our lives or is this blasphemy?
Does Jesus really want to be a part of every aspect of our lives, even the mundane?
Does the answer lie in the words or the intent?
