This week Celeste takes a look at book one of the Wheel of Time Series, The Eye of the World. This book brought about some interesting conversation about the need for everyone to have a community and Celeste wants to share some of her thoughts with you.
Recently I’ve been listening to The Eye of The World by Robert Jordan. This is one of those books that are considered a must-read if you are into fantasy stories. And I have to say I agree. This book was phenomenal, though in my opinion, it’s better to listen to than to read, but that’s me.
The whole story follows these four young men, two young ladies, a woman who is called an Isadye named Moraine and her companion called a Warder Lan. The Isadye and the warder are trying to heal the world from a great evil or a coming shadow. Throughout the book, you learn that there are no Male Isadye, though there were some at one point in history. Near the end of the book, they come upon the eye of the world. As they’re looking into it, Moraine makes a statement. She says, “Male Isadye and Female together. The green man spoke true; the greatest wonders of the age of legends were done in that way.”
This statement got me to thinking about a verse in Hebrews 10:24-25
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV
As Christians, it’s an essential part of our faith that we have interaction with one another. To encourage, stir up and also correct each other. In the instance of this story that Robert Jordan has put together, we see that both male and female Isadye are needed. In Christianity, Every believer, regardless of sex, race, or nationality, is needed in your weekly if not daily life. We need fellowship with each other, and while we here at Geek Devotions do our best to provide a place for the digital community, it’s just as important to have people you see in real life or in person as well. Digital and physical community is essential to our walk as Christians. Are you being proactive in making sure that is a part of your life?
