Dancing & Crying

Luke 7:31-36“To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other:

“ ‘We played the flute for you,
and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge,
and you did not cry.’

For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.” ’ But wisdom is proved right by all her children.” (NIV 1984)

My Musings – Sometimes my Sunday text, leads me to a comic to help illustrate it.  Other times, like the comic above, I find a comic that amuses me and I search out a text to go along with it.  I liked this week’s comic, but finding a text was challenging.

I wonder if sometimes my readers find my Sunday diversions into the “comic section” amusing or offensive?  Maybe some think I should stick with the “editorial page.”  I like to think we can find a word from God in both sections.  I, for one, am thankful that God blessed us with the ability to laugh now and then.

My Advice – Life has plenty of moments when we have to sing the dirge and cry.  Let’s take the opportunity when it comes to play the flute and dance.
