Stop Following the Crowd!

Stop Following the Crowd!

3285086232_62a1e59c5f_bStop following the crowd!

Easier said than done. There is something in us that makes us want to be a part of the crowd.  When the crowd goes for something its just human nature to follow.The prankster with a hidden camera, Alan Funt, was notorious for exposing our frailties. In two episodes from his popular 1960’s show “Candid Camera,” Funt had fun with the human tendency to follow the crowd.

Scene # 1. A man walks into the waiting room of a doctor’s office. He looks around and is surprised by what he sees: everybody is in his or her underwear. People are drinking coffee in their underwear, reading magazines in their underwear, and carrying on conversations in their underwear. He’s shocked at first, but then decides that they must know something he doesn’t. After about twenty seconds, he also takes off his clothes and sits down in his underwear.

Scene #2. A woman waits patiently for an elevator in an office building. After a short period, the elevator arrives and the doors open. As she looks in, she notices that everybody is turned around and facing to the rear of the elevator. So, she, too, gets into the elevator and faces the rear.

All of us are subject to group pressures. Study your own behavior, and you’ll see how much you conform to various situations. Let’s suppose that you’re driving down the freeway, and everyone around you is going ten miles per hour over the speed limit. What happens?

It’s very difficult not to break the law. You get caught up in the “flow of traffic.” Suppose that you are a pedestrian standing at the corner of an intersection in a major city. Ten or twelve other people are standing there with you. The sign says, “DON’T WALK,” but no traffic is coming. Then one of the pedestrians crosses the street against the light. Soon another goes, and then another. In no time, all the other pedestrians have crossed the street against the light.

Our nature is to follow the crowd. Even when the crowd is going the wrong way. Romans 12:2 has a different idea.

(Romans 12:2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Stop following the crowd.

Mind the Rules

Mind the Rules

4427640980_f90f421c97_oWe need rules. No question. We can’t live without them.

Having said that. We need to constantly re-evaluate the rules we live by. You see, without even thinking we can make up rules and then insist on keeping them even when it cuts against something more important .

Case in point. Matthew 12:9-13. God made a rule: “No work on the Sabbath.” Actually, that was one of the 10 commandments. But the religious folks added their own rules to that rule. In Jesus’ day they had over 600 rules about what you could or could not do on the Sabbath. And those rules often ran counter to God’s intention. Jesus comes up on a man with a crippled hand.

The rule says no work.

Healing is work. If Jesus heals the man, he breaks the rule.

These legalists would rather let a man suffer than break the Sabbath.

Jesus said, “You make exceptions for your sheep but not a man. That’s crazy.” and then he healed the man.

Our rules can get ridiculous.

Several years ago, I was at a church and we had Vacation Bible School. It was Friday: My day off.

So after the morning events, I went back home to mow the lawn. About 11:00, I got a call. There were four young girls concerned about their salvation, could I come up to talk to them.

Sure.

I had a dilemma. I was in shorts and a t-shirt. Should I go in, shower, clean up and put on long pants, or just go.

To be honest, I didn’t think about it much. I just went.

Here’s my problem. I can’t remember that I’m a pastor a lot of the time, so I just act like a regular guy. I head to church in shorts and a t-shirt to lead some girls to Jesus. Not really thinking about it.

I went in through the gym to say hi to everybody. I noticed that some of the ladies that worked in the cookies and punch area were cool. I went and led four little girls to Jesus.

Great morning.

Went back home.

On Sunday, I heard about it. “The pastor came to church without pants on!”

I had pants on! They were short pants, but they were pants. Half the people working in VBS had shorts on, but I was the pastor, so several people were upset about that.

Do you feel the irony? I led four children to Jesus that morning, but they weren’t rejoicing over their salvation. They were upset because because the cloth I was wearing on my legs didn’t go all the way down to my ankles.

I broke a rule. You know what? I’d do it again.

Watch your rules. Especially the ones we make up. Never let them get in the way of something really important, like a relationship.

Jumping into the Gorilla’s Cage

Jumping into the Gorilla’s Cage

download (1)

I came upon this story out of Johannesburg, South Africa. On May 5, 2004 Max the Gorilla died at the age of 33. He was a celebrity because he apparently captured a criminal fleeing justice. That made me wonder, so I tracked it down.

Apparently, some fellow named Isaac Mofokeng burglarized a residence, fired a gun, and fled police back in 1997.

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – Fleeing from police, Isaac Mofokeng ran blindly into the local zoo and jumped over a low wall into one of the enclosures. Big mistake. For the pen belonged to Max the gorilla, who did not appreciate the sudden invasion of his privacy. “The first thing the gorilla did was rip my jeans and bite me on the buttocks,” Mofokeng told a Johannesburg court Wednesday. “I thought my last hour had come.”

In panic, Mofokeng shot Max twice. Once in the jaw and once in the arm. Second big mistake. This only made Max more angry. Mad Max.

Max weighed 550 pounds. Two of Shakeel O’Neil and twice the power.

Mofokeng said:

“Max dropped me and I fell into the water. (He) ran around and became violent, grabbed me by my right leg, swung me around and threw me against the wall and I became dizzy,”

I thought, you know, when you jump the fence into the gorilla cage you are in a tough situation.

Life is like that. So many times we place ourselves in tough situations. Sometimes it’s financial. The ends don’t meet, and then comes an emergency. Sometimes it’s a sense of helplessness over a loved one. Sometimes it’s a health concern.

Regardless of WHAT it is, I believe God wants to use your tough situation for His glory. In fact, the greatest lives often come from the greatest troubles.

Here’s what James said:

(James 1:22) Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

Playing the Blame Game

Playing the Blame Game

HST129516 The Fall of Man, 1549 (oil on panel) by Cranach, Lucas the Younger (1515-86); 21.7x17.1 cm; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, USA; Edith A. and Percy S. Straus Collection; PERMISSION REQUIRED FOR NON EDITORIAL USAGE; German,  out of copyright

PLEASE NOTE: The Bridgeman Art Library works with the owner of this image to clear permission. If you wish to reproduce this image, please inform us so we can clear permission for you.My friend Alan got into his car to go to work and backed into his wife’s car that was parked behind him. Alan got out, went into the house where his wife was showering and yelled, “Way to go! You just wrecked BOTH cars!”

His wife said, “How did I wreck both cars, I’m in the shower?”

He said, “You parked your car right in my blind spot.”

She said, “How can you have a blind spot when you get into your car and mine is clearly behind yours?

Alan, a bit frustrated, fired back, “You just… can!”

Blame is a funny thing. We always want to use it to shift the guilt. People are like scales. Get too much guilt and you have to do something with it.

In the garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve got caught for eating the fruit they all played the blame game. God started with Adam. “Adam, did you eat the fruit?”

Have you ever listened carefully to his response? Sure, he blamed Eve. But in an indirect way, he also blamed God. “It was that woman YOU gave me.”

In other words, none of this would have happened if you hadn’t given me the woman. Way to go God, you just wrecked both cars.

Spotlight turns to Eve. She pointed at the snake. “It was the snake, he made me do it.” The snake slithered away.

We all tend to play the blame game to get rid of guilt. My parents made me this way. Society made me do it. A rough childhood, or a friend or a big brother, or a bad boss or something else. It’s never my fault.

There is a better way to get rid of guilt than blame. Take responsibility. Here’s the magic formula to defuse a difficult situation, “I’m sorry, please forgive me.” It works with people, and it works with God.
Consider Psalm 32:5.

Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the LORD.”
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.

Walking a Tightrope

Walking a Tightrope

SONY DSCOn July 30, 1859, 35-year-old Jean-Francois Gravelet – better known as “Blondin” – walked across a tight rope across the Niagara River just above the falls. The rope was stretched 1100 feet and it was 160 above the raging waters. After that he went on to cross the falls a dozen more times. Each time he would try something new and unique. He did it blind folded. He did it pushing a wheelbarrow. Once he took a small table and a stove and cooked eggs.

The novelty was wearing thin. What could he do to make the crowds keep coming back. Blondin thought that it might thrill the crowds if he did it with someone on his back. But who was crazy enough to do that? He looked at his manager Harry Colcord.

“Do you really believe in me. . .”

Colcord grudgingly agreed.

The first time I came across that story I thought, “Now that’s faith. Do you really believe? Climb on board.” Difference between saying you believe and really believing.

But then I came across the rest of the story. Harry Colcord’s account.

1000 feet is a long way to carry another man. About half-way across Blondin got tired and stumbled. They stopped. Harry climbed down and so Blondin could rest. Then he carefully climbed back up. Blondin had to stop and rest four more times. They got into more trouble when they came to a guy rope near the Canadian side. The tightrope started swaying dangerously and Blondin struggled to keep his balance. Then a guy rope broke. And the pair nearly fell. When Blondin finally came to the Canadian shore he was drenched in sweat and Harry Colcord’s eyes were shut tight.

Colcord later said, “The ordeal was a nightmare from beginning to end.”

Sometimes we do that. We think, “Man this is it. This is the big deal and so we rush into things without really checking it out. And we get burned.” Have you done that before? Maybe you’re doing it right now.

My dad used to have a phrase, “Son,” he would say, “Look before you leap.” Know what you are getting into.

He didn’t know it, but my dad was giving me biblical counsel.

(Proverbs 22:3) A prudent person sees trouble coming and ducks; a simpleton walks in blindly and is clobbered.

One of the aspects of wisdom is learning to predict the problems and make wise choices. And the result is a life that is a lot less stressful. Sounds good doesn’t it. So be wise. Check it out first. Look before you leap.
