There are times that people put a broad divide with pragmatism and spirituality! It seems that when one is leaned into a spiritual perspective that he lose his pragmatic principles.
Pragmatism is logical; it takes a glimpse into what is reasonable to do. A religious person could be pragmatic too in a way. When one deals with science, it’s not necessarily that that person could not be close to God and spiritual things. Actually he could be more scientific! For science is not a field by itself. It is under the sovereignty of God. Everything is!
The more a person is close to God, the greater tendency for that person to be practical and logical. For logic falls under the rule of the Almighty. Next time they tell you: “You are so religious.” Just quip, “And I am logical too.” 😊😊😊
