Nobody get excited, my hairline has receded way to far to be talking about haircuts and I’m not nearly tired or delirious enough to tread into the discussion on long hair or veil or covering in 1 Corinthians 11.
No, I’m talking about wind shear or water shear in my article in Heartlight this week. These illustrate the difficult place that many of us find ourselves if we are trying to love God with all of heart, sould, mind and strength and yet are trying to love our neighbors who are not Christians.
How do you know what to do in the shear where these values appear to collide? Does “The Jesus Vibe” give us any insight into how do this?
Take a look at the article and let me know what you think about these questions as we all try to live in “The Shear” like Jesus did:Here are some questions for all of us to consider:
Why is it so hard for those of us so steeped in the Christian faith to live in “The Shear”?
Why do those who Jesus reached seem so turned off by Jesus’ followers today?
What do you need to do to live more fully in “The Shear” rather than in the shadow and security of church folks?
What are some parables of Jesus or actions of Jesus that teach us about how to live in “The Shear”?
