Have you ever noticed how odd people are? Now, not me you understand. I am not odd, not odd at all. Or am I? No I don’t think so. I mean is it odd that I really hate to talk on the phone? I love reading the Old Testament. I like collard greens. I am crazy about children, but I don’t want to take any of them home with me (except my own). I love to cook. I feel lonely even at my own church. I don’t like to travel. I really like to just be home. I love shoes but seem to wear the same ones all the time. Do you think these things are odd?
Let me tell you another odd thing. My grand-daughter was asked to take her pony tail bands off her wrist. Is that odd to you? Since when have we decided to worry about a ponytail holder in place of pointing out the joy of knowing Jesus. Okay, okay maybe I am being harsh, I know her school teaches about Jesus, but I wonder if a ponytail band would make Jesus want to set this girl straight. I doubt it.
Where does it start and where does it stop? What should we worry about and what should we let go? Why can I wear a glitzy belt but if I move it a few inches up to my neck it is considered wrong. And, if I were a student I would be asked to remove it. Now that I am an adult I would probably be fired. I don’t get it.
Will it ever change or are we always going to pick at the sliver and skip over the post?
