"Think About It"

How’s Your Soul?
Pastor B.J. Knefley

Good question? How would you answer that? Is there a difference between your soul and your spirit or is it all the same? Some interchange the soul and spirit as being the same thing but I believe that the soul is the earthly part of a person while the spirit is the eternal part. As such the soul represents what’s in the very depths of a person. It is the place that hurts and wounds are stored. Out of the dark recesses of the soul come fear, anger, bitterness, resentments and many other things that we don’t often want to admit that we harbor within us.

So, how does a person come to discover what’s in their soul? One way is to have someone push your buttons. What might that look like? Have someone pull out in front of you when you’re in a hurry and you might find out. Have you ever had a response to something that surprised even you? That might give you an indication as to what’s in your soul. Please understand, I’m not telling you to go out and test yourself to find out what’s in you soul but to just be more observant of your responses to life’s ups and downs, you’ll find out soon enough.

The question, “How’s your soul?” may seem simple, but it’s actually a deep question and many don’t want to go there. We live in a very superficial world. When people ask you how you’re doing, they really don’t want to know, they’re just being polite. After all, who really wants to hear how you’re doing? So here in lies the other problem, we don’t care for others. The loving our neighbor commandment; we love them if they stay on their own side of the fence. Somewhere along the line, we’ve forgotten how to get along. The soul wounds happen when we stop communicating and then live in a manner that it’s all about us. Sad because we loose the sense of community and the more we allow technology to take over, the less personal interaction we have creating an atmosphere for greater wounds and hurts. When we start to learn to take care of our own souls we will have a tendency to have concern for the souls of others. Loving your neighbor helps everyone. Think about it.
