Jesus said, everyone but them

social media quote about love
Thank you social media for putting John’s quote in view.

Picture Jesus (or your religion’s supreme representative) talking to a picnic table full of middle school students at a town park.

Jesus talks passionately about how Love is the greatest of these: Faith, Hope and Love.

Jesus concludes his middle school lesson with a caveat to which He says, “You should love every human being….except for those people over there.”

“Over there” at another picnic table are two couples: one lesbian couple and one gay couple.

You can’t picture Jesus saying this to anyone, right?

We should never float that script around in our heads and hearts either.

Religious tradition and dogma should never paint Jesus (or your religion’s supreme representative) as homophobic or sexist (etc).

This is an X-ray view of what swims around in jeff-land. So grateful this post’s photo says the same thing this post says but in a different, complimentary way.

From that moment forward

GNP.

It takes an instant to become a Christian. It takes a lifetime to be like Christ.

The circle of life

instructions on paper
Most write Family. Then i ask them what’s at the center of Family. Many then say God. i press once more, what’s at the center of that. They usually stop with God.
circle with the word Jesus written in the center
i then reveal my answer and it’s as if they are caught off guard. Why/how did a Christian miss this?

What gift has Providence on man that is so dear to him as his children.

Cicero

The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Gratitude, more aware of what you have and what you don’t. Recognizing the treasures in the simple – a child’s hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common – a warm bed, a hot meal, a clean shirt.

Max Lucado

Don’t follow Christians

Hidden Mickey by jeff noel
Hidden Mickey at Virginia Falls in Glacier National Park. The purpose of Lent is often hidden too.

Don’t follow Christians, follow Jesus.

Christians are messed up because they’re human.

Flawed.

Hopeful.

Caring.

Yet weak.

The devil makes Christians look stupid far too often.

The devil could never make Jesus look stupid.

Don’t follow Christians and expect to not be let down.

PS. Do the math on Christians too. An overwhelming percentage of great humanitarian deeds and inspiring rallying to serve the underserved are initiated and carried out by Christians.

Nothing will ever repay Jesus

Jesus offered it up.

Nothing will ever repay Jesus.

Or is there something?

We each have to decide our own answer and then proceed accordingly.
