It’s a beautiful Saturday and the only thing on our family “agenda” is going to a birthday party held for some people we just recently met. I am thankful to be invited. I am thankful to be feeling well enough to attend! Thanks for every one’s prayers, I am getting healthier every day. (Can you tell I’m feeling a little thankful today?!)
I was just thinking about how much my priorities have changed. There was a time when meetings, and religious services, and work filled my schedule. Parties just rarely made the cut. I was too busy with the “serious business” of being a “christian”.
Jesus went to parties. Jesus even made a little “miracle wine” when the party went dry. I think Jesus was the “life of the party”. He was said to be a “friend of sinners”. Even though I’m not great in social situations ( I just try not to break or spill anything!) I am looking forward to attending a birthday party for people I hardly know-yet! It’s top priority. I look forward to meeting new people, hearing their stories, and maybe even telling someone mine. It’s an adventure…
I love the fact that following Jesus is more likely to lead you to a party than a “meeting”… How about you?
