Before you read this post you must understand that it was written at 12:30 A.M. as a five minute free writing response the the word prompt from Five Minute Friday. Though it may sound a bit like rambling, I think I come around to a certain coherent point at the end.
Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?
Avoiding the obvious requires great skill.
Denying what your eyes are telling you.
Ignoring what your ears are hearing.
Ask me what I think about the weather and I will tell you why I chose cereal rather than eggs for breakfast. Ridiculous, but I gave you an answer.
Give me a minute and I’ll give you a reason worthy of any major newspaper’s front page.
Because there is no longer a need for discernment in reporting the news. People can make up whatever pleases themselves and if they find just one person who agrees with them, that makes it good.
What is good?
Nobody knows. Not anymore.
Truly, the only good that has been or ever will be is God.
He is the Source of all goodness. Goodness exists because He does.
God is good.
God is other.
Perfect. Holy. Whole. Light. Life.
Only the fool laughs at the concept of God.
Only the mocker would bite the Hand that feeds him.
Only the redeemed would gladly dispossess everything they have to possess what comes only from Almighty God.
Put that headline on the front page news and make the world wonder.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."
Romans 12:2 (NASB)
