"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of
the power may be of God and not of us." (2 Corinthians 4:7)
I think that this verse has truth beyond the Christian meaning. It applies in 12-Step programs that speak of trusting a higher power to suspend our addictions where we could not. I believe that the best of humanity has a divine spark and the worst behavior of humanity is aided by a "lower power." The acknowledgement of divine forces gives me a glimpse of eternity. Today is not all there is. This is something I feel in my heart, not something I wish to debate about.
