Yesterday, I wrote about the sense of place I am developing in my new home, imagining myself creating a future and a past here. But as I thought about the idea more overnight and today, and then when I read one of the comments from yesterday’s post, I realized this idea needs more attention.

As a believer, if this world is not my home, what am I doing getting all cozy here?

I won’t even try to cover all the nuances of this question in one post, but here is a place to get us started. From Acts 17:26: “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.”

If nothing else, we can rest in the knowledge that God has placed us where we live according to his sovereign will. Surely we can grow comfortable with that idea.

Any thoughts?
