What if…

“Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of these eager followers of Jesus in the first century. What if I were the potential disciple being told to drop my nets? What if you were the man whom Jesus told to not even say good-bye to his family? What if we were told to hate our families and give up everything we had in order to follow Jesus?

“This is where we come fact to face with a dangerous reality. We do have to give up everything we have to follow Jesus. We do have to love him in a way that makes our closest relationships in this world look like hate. And it is entirely possible that he will tell us to sell everything we have and give it to the poor.”

Mothers-in-Law Write the Darnedest Things

Here’s a cool parable from my mother-in-law.  I don’t know her source, so no plagiarism is intended.

Three men were walking on a wall,
Feeling, Faith, and Fact.
When Feeling took an awful fall,
And Faith was taken back,
So close was Faith to Feeling,
He stumbled and fell too.
But Fact remained,
And pulled Faith back,
And Faith brought Feeling too.”
