Episode Info

Episode Info: We live in a microwave generation. We want everything right now. The idea of waiting for something seems outrageous to us. We will even pay ginormous shipping prices just to get our package here one day earlier. But, what has this mindset done to us? Does it have negative effects on us as a whole? Are we sacrificing the "right things" for the "things right now?" Listen to this Episode Talk the Walk Question: Is Jesus Weird? Answer: Probably. Ok, let me explain. My daughter and I were goofing around and calling each other weird. I said that everyone was weird. She disagreed, citing that "Jesus isn't weird." That made me think. Is she right? The gospels tell us about Jesus when He lived on the earth. He said and did some interesting things. For example: * He said stuff like "Eat my flesh and drink my blood" (John 6:56) * He also said He would "tear down the temple and rebuild it in three days." (John 2:19) * He hung out with fishermen and tax collectors. * He spoke to a samaritan woman. (John 4) * And the like... The religious rulers of the day found Him very offensive. Most people were unsure of Him as a teacher...until He did miraculous things, which again was weird. So, was Jesus weird. Well, according to the culture of the day He lived...probably. What does this mean for us? Simply: Be weird. Jesus was. I'm not saying go out and get attention just for doing something insane. But, being different isn't a bad thing. Jesus challenged the ideals and customs of people He was around all the time. Be challeging to those that you are around. But, most importantly, do it just like Jesus did: In Love. Now that would be weird... Right vs Right Now I, like many of you, love to have something right now. I want to get something right away. When I get something on my mind, I need to have it. Well, I don't "need" to have it but my brain tells me I do. Sound familiar? We want WHAT we want WEHN we want it...and that is usually as soon as possible.Don't believe me? Ask yourself these questions: * Have you ever paid more for "express shipping?" * Have you ever stood over a pot waiting for water to boil? * Ever bought something because it was "quick dry" or "fast adhesive?" * Ever gotten really frustrated when the attendant at the drive thru tells you to pull forward to wait? * Ever gotten mad at the sky becuase rain postponed your plans? Yeah, we are all guilty of it from time to time. We are obsessed with the right now
