Daily Fast Write 3/11/15

“But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.” Matt. 9:12 How welcoming are we to those who are not whole? Generally…not very. We judge people if they smell like cigarette smoke. We judge them if their clothes aren’t right. We judge them if their hair is too long or they have a beard. But why? Of course, these are just a few of the ways we judge people. We judge them for being “sinners” as if we’re not all sinners. I do actually think Holiness is possible. I reckon I’m not there, I’ll shout and scream at drivers, lay on the horn, everything else. Oops. I wonder how Job’s patience would have served him in New York City traffic? Haha, patience of Job. Don’t folks realize that he wasn’t all that patient? He got quite angry with God in some of those middle chapters. But then, he had leprosy, his wife and kids had been killed, and so forth, so it’s reasonable to think that he’d have gotten angry with God. We sometimes forget to do that. So much theology is based on this nonsensical notion that “it’s all part of the plan” so we try to tell people that they can’t get angry with God. I think differently. Get angry with Him when something doesn’t go your way. God’s pretty BIG, God can handle your words and your anger. God won’t get any smaller because of you or me.
