"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music,or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."
... Martin Luther King, Jr.
Still gotta say... It's blowing me away that so many of my Christian friends are red-hot angry at our President, their friends and relatives who voted for him and Today's world, period.
The Bible warned about these times! And we were told not to wrestle against flesh and blood, but oh, the Christians, they are 'a wrestlin'. And choosing name-calling over praying, choosing worry over faith, choosing hatred over love. Looking like twins to non-Christians who didn't get their way and just making a grand lot of noise.
Who really has that kind of time? Who wants to waste their few years on this planet doing the opposite of what the Bible says?
This 'street sweeper' has a job to do, a calling (a couple of them) and I'll be held responsible for giving them my all, for studying to improve upon them, for allowing God to shine through them.
And oh, in my 50's I don't have time for (scary) Bunny Trails, so please excuse me for not joining the Hatred and Fear Clubs. Color me too busy traveling a different path.
"The glory of God is man fully alive." ... Saint Irenaeus
Oh, to daily remain fully alive as God intended!
