Thought for the Day: I bought a few peaches last month. They looked really good, and I was hoping for a little peach juice dripping down my chin. You know those really good peaches that are often hard to find. I won’t say that I was disappointed, but they were mediocre at best. Do you ever feel like you don’t quite fit in the bad fruit category, but you don’t fit in the good fruit category? It would have been nice to have Jesus expound on the mediocre fruit that strives toward the good category. Jesus was often using hyperbole to make a point, and with that in mind, I don’t believe he was ready to toss us in the fire for being less than the best and producing less than the best. Don’t you imagine that he is actually pleased with those in the mediocre category who are finding ways of becoming even better for the sake of the world.
Prayer: Continue to work with us, Gracious God. Continue to show us those places in our own lives where we can be more than what we were yesterday. You’re not demanding perfection, but you willingly journey with us as we strive to do better. Thank you! Amen.
