You find interesting thoughts and quotes in some unexpected places. As I was driving to the office yesterday, I stopped behind a car at a red light. On the back of the car were two bumper stickers. Now there are a lot of dumb bumper stickers out there and some that are way overused. This was not one I had seen before and would be a great discussion starter. Here’s what it said:
“Jesus called. He wants His religion back.”
Made me consider how well we do (or don’t) represent what Jesus was really all about.
The other nugget of wisdom came through email from a good friend of mine. It was today’s quote from a desk calendar. Here’s what it said:
Goethe taught, “Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.”
Great insight to the importance of small group or being in an environment where we can help each other become who God created us to be.
