“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”  1 Corinthians1:18

Have you ever witnessed kiddos trying to slurp up the last bit of a delicious drink?  With a straw?  They’re passionate about it . . . that gurgling sound is unmistakable, isn’t it?  They want every sugar-infested drop.

Recently at a ball game I observed . . . heard . . . experienced, parents that were not happy with a call by the umpire.  Wow!  Life or death decisions fits T-ball to a tee!  We can become passionate about the most curious things – from sugar-filled drops to a game where the players themselves hardly even care that they’re there!

Here’s the thing . . . (and you knew there would be one).  Most Christians I know are just the opposite.  They can take it or leave it.  They can take or leave an opportunity to grow, or an opportunity to be strengthened, or an opportunity to invest themselves more fanatically.  Unless there’s conflict or casserole (either seems to bring out the Baptists) they would just as soon not be bothered with it.  Keep it peppy . . . Keep it brief . . . and keep it predictable . . . so we can keep on with our day!  Hey that sounds like a winning formula.

Just one little observation.  (I genuinely hesitate to mention it.)  Jesus . . . God the Son, truly seems to be the antithesis of every thing I just mentioned.
• He is all in because it's all Him.
• He doesn’t slurp the lukewarm liquid, He vomits it right back out.

I know it’s hardly worth mentioning, carry on!
