Thursday's Thoughts

"True humility, Christian humility, should prompt us to leave our "comfort zone" for the benefit and blessing of others. Our Lord left the comforts of heaven and came to suffer here on earth, in order to obey His Father's will and to promote His Father's interests. Many of us tend to withdraw into the safety and comfort of our "comfort zone"- our place of comfort, security, and ease - rather than to venture out into deeper waters, for the benefit of others. We seek to hide behind our strengths, when God may choose to manifest His power through our weaknesses (2 Corinthians 12:8-10). In slightly different terms, we can see from our text that God may call us out of our comfort and ease into suffering for the sake of the gospel and our Christian brothers and sisters. The path of suffering which our Lord humbly chose to walk (to the glory of the Father) makes any suffering on our part seem pathetic in comparison (for emphasize)."

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews about their observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days. 

The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed!"

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your honor, How can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."

The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observanceor holiday for atheists." 

The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fool’s Day. Psalm 14:1states,  'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.'  Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned." 

You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!
