Thankful Thursday…..and let me say, first, that I hope I didn’t offend anyone with yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday – such a crazy photo! And, I promise you, no one that I know! Seems when we visited San Antonio a few months ago, we arrived during Festival! Literally thousands packed the city daily with parades, music, events, food (and drink?!?) in order to celebrate. Exactly what they were celebrating, I am not positive and I’m not sure many of them knew either. But it didn’t seem to matter…the excuse was there to celebrate – and celebrate excessively!
Don’t get me wrong – I enjoy a good celebration. I had a wonderful time just last weekend celebrating our country…..and just mention a birthday, and I’m all about the celebrating! But, goodness, how quickly our emotional selves can lose control. Certainly the events of the past couple days prove that well!
I must admit I can easily become critical…and disgusted. Then, today, the children of Israel came to mind. After waiting for Moses to return from Mount Sinai, and what most likely started “innocently”, their seeking for a god escalated into a wild, wicked dance of idol worship. I think how could Aaron get caught up in that??? How, indeed. Not to hard to imagine, is it?
Instead of being so critical…perhaps events like this week should cause me to pray – and pray more. Pray for my country. Pray for those around me so desperately seeking someone to worship. Pray to keep myself unspotted from the sin of this world.
So I got a little off from Thankful Thursday….guess I’ll just leave it at A Thought for Thursday!!
