    “Behold”
    "Behold" - God has a message for us and it is that this is about Jesus - it is about what He has called the Church to be in our world and it is to be about Jesus.  If we are about anything else, we've missed it!

Attitude

I’m a big Peanuts fan – you know, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and especially Snoopy.  Charles Schultz, the creator of the comic strip had a great sense of humor and timing.  One of my favorite strips shows Charlie Brown walking up to Snoopy, his dog, with a box in his hands and in the first panel he says, “This is the medicine that the vet said would be good for you.”  In the next panel he says “I have also heard however that laughter is the best medicine . . . .”  He looks at Snoopy and asks, “Which would you prefer?” to which Snoopy throws back his head and laughs “Ha Ha Ha Ha!”  In the last panel Charlie Brown is walking away and he says, “That was easy.”  Attitude is so very important!

Ordinary Christians

We live in an age of heroes, super heroes, stars, superstars, divas, celebrities, and people who think that their level of talent, money or fame afford them the privilege of being treated as special.  Of course being treated as special involves privilege, special access and accommodation.  And all of this means that there are many, many, many people who feel like they are above the rules, above the law and above every body else in the world.  Sadly, we have fostered this attitude in our society by treating people in such a way that they feel they deserve it.  I read an article today that talked about actors and actresses who no longer are sought after for movies because they became impossible to work with.  This came because of attitudes of privilege and expectation because they feel like they are better than everyone else.  And so they become impossible to work with, treating people as inferiors.  Then there are the athletes in our society who feel like they can get away with almost anything because of their ability to shoot, kick, hit, carry, pass or catch a ball.  It has become almost rare to find an athlete that will sign an autograph without charging money for the privilege of them writing their unintelligible scrawl on a piece of paper. Sadly, it isn’t just athletes or movie stars or celebrities that act this way.  Unfortunately we find it in the church world as well. Which leads me to a short paragraph I cam across again today that I wanted to share.

So, You Think You have Problems

Dr. Theodore Rubin, a psychiatrist and author had this to say about problems:  “The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.”  I think I would pretty much agree with him – the problem is not the problem.  If we aren’t careful we will somehow get the idea that if we are good enough, or if we are careful, or if we don’t make a mistake we can get rid of all of our problems.  The only problem with that is that it just isn’t true.  Problems are a part of life and we only make problems bigger when we refuse to believe that.  What if we learned to handle our problems the way that Moses handled this problem?  Look at it with me.
