Tonight I had the pleasure of attending a 9th Grade Chorus concert that some of my students were in. It was the typical chorus concert: a few show tunes, some oldies, the always faithful patriotic song, and of course my favorite, the goofy dances. In fact, one young man was actually doing splits on stage…yeah, painful! But, as I sat there and watched the students do all kinds of crazy and sometimes weird things, this thought crossed my mind. These 9th Graders are up there making fools of themselves just for some chorus concert and so often I’m not willing to be a fool for the sake of my Savior. The verse in 2 Samuel comes to mind where King David said, “I will become even more undignified than this…” So often I am not willing to step out because it’s uncomfortable or uncertain. But God’s called us to so much more than comfort and certainty. God doesn’t use the comfortable. He uses the fool. Be a fool for Christ tomorrow – try something new!!
