I had one of those "Oh!" moments the other day. We need a name for these, don't we? Submit your suggestions and we'll VOTE!
See, we care so much about what people think of us. Our friends, our classmates, people we work with -- and we do things that we're pretty sure we'll be accepted by them. I mean, we wouldn't want to something that would make those people think we're weird or something, would we?
Who created you? Me? That would be God.
You know what's in the Bible, that John Newton also said? "Be in the world, but not of it." That's actually part of the lyrics in the song I wrote, called In This World, on my BlogPod [name courtesty of Anna:P] in the right column there.
God made us. God's the one who actually care's about every single little thing we do and say. He's the one who's going to judge us and know what we did good and when we listened and when we didn't.
When it comes right down to it, how much do you care about the person who wore a really funny-looking outfit down the street yesterday? Uh, not at all maybe? I didn't even notice anyone. Because who cares?
Maybe if we stop caring about those things, everyone else will, too. But how do we even start? Here's what I say.
Forget about what those people are saying -- if they want you to do something "cool" but it's really a silly thing to do -- well, don't. I know that's just easier said than done.
But choose Jesus. He's the One who loves us. Like, really does. JESUS LOVES YOU.
So here it is. Your decision.
Jesus. The world.
I know who I'm choosing.
...remember the good old blogging days? ...KUTAW! ...that's right. Keep up the awesome work. Who made that up, anyway? It was like, Chelsea or someone... I love remembering good times.
