I don’t agree with a whole lot that Ricky Gervais says about life, but this quote struck a chord with me. It’s a reminder that you’re not alone, no matter what you’re going through. You’re in good company, when you have no idea what to do. You are surrounded by people who feel the same way, when you’re confused and don’t know where to turn.
But the knowledge that everyone is just as lost as you are isn’t all that comforting, really. It’s only when you add Jesus to the picture that it becomes amazing. Then the narrative becomes: “We’re all lost, and we all have a God who loves us and has gone to unimaginable lengths to find us and bring us home.”
