While I was shopping I ran into someone at the store. I said hi and after saying hi they whispered, “I never shop here, like never, but wouldn’t you know that I’d run into someone that knew me the moment I did.”
I thought it was kind of a funny thing to say. I mean, we weren’t in some place to be embarrassed about. I shop the store quite often for groceries and other things, but this person seemed a little bothered to be seen there.
The whole instance made me start thinking about when I might have “I never...” moments. Moments when I was embarrassed about a choice I had made. Maybe it was a song that I listened to or a movie that I watched.
I remember someone talking about a particular TV show and thinking, “Oh my goodness, I can’t believe this person watches that show. I mean, I watched it but I wouldn’t go around telling everyone that I watched it.” (That was my clear indicator that I shouldn’t have watched it in the first place.)
We’re not going to do everything alike. We all have different tastes in the stores we shop, the movies and shows we watch, the music we listen to, the clothes we wear, etc.
But one thing, as Christians, that we should keep at the front of our mind at all times is this.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All power in heaven and on earth is given to me. So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you, and I will be with you always, even until the end of this age.””
A New Identity
What is this blog about? You mean, I'm supposed to have a purpose? Ok, if that's required then my purpose is life.
Better with age...
