Isaac Newton was a short man. A strong jaw and a fine nose marked his craggy complexion. The back of his large head protruded noticeably. They say the painfully reclusive professor cared little about food and even less about clothing. His classes at Cambridge were poorly attended.
One day Isaac Newton was sitting in a contemplative mood when in his own words, he “… was occasioned by the fall of an apple.” The apple got Newton thinking. “What’s pulling it toward the ground? Could it be that the same force acting on the apple was acting on the planets and stars?”
After inventing Calculus to do the math, Newton applied discoveries by Kepler and Piccard to prove that gravity controlled the movement of the planets.
Satisfied that he was right, the absent-minded professor set aside his findings among stacks of other papers and went back to his favorite hobby of trying to turn lead into gold.
Enter Edmond Halley. Halley was 14 years younger than Newton and his exact opposite. Where Newton was withdrawn and reclusive, Halley was outgoing and gregarious. In 1684 Halley was working on the orbits of comets when Christopher Wren told him of a theory Newton discussed in one of his lectures years earlier.
Halley rushed to Cambridge. Unfortunately, Newton had lost his calculations. Think about that. The guy that discovered gravity had lost it. Good thing he was Isaac Newton and he could reproduce his research.
When he read Newton’s conclusions Halley instantly recognized their importance. “You must publish this!” Newton refused. He was reluctant to expose himself to public criticism. Years earlier he’d had a bad experience with scientific scrutiny. Halley insisted. He even agreed to personally pay for the publication. When Newton’s Principia came off the press (1687) the way we would understand the universe changed forever.
A few years after that, (1705), Edmund Halley used Newton’s ideas to plot the course of a significant comet that reappeared every 75 years. Halley predicted the comet would reappear in 1758. He didn’t live to confirm his theory, but when the comet showed up on time they named it after him. The comet would forever be known as Halley’s Comet but the ideas it proved belonged to Newton.
Think what might have happened had we not had Isaac Newton AND Edmund Halley. Without Halley’s push Newton’s findings might have been lost for generations. We needed BOTH men.
That story is a powerful reminder of how we need each other.
Everyone is good at something but nobody is good at everything. I tell the church all the time, “Every single one of you is better than me in some way.” Your strengths perfectly align with my limitations. God designed us like that so that we will need each other. John Donne was right, “No man is an island.”
Success almost always comes from two. There were two Disney’s, Walt AND Roy. There would be Apple without Jobs AND Woz. Ford had Malcomson. Gates had Alan. It took both Harley AND Davidson to build the better motorcycle. One man may get the credit but look beneath most achievements of merit and you will find a team.
That’s because not only are we better together but also we make each other better.
So let’s get busy and work together.
Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;
by Bill Dye
How do you like your crow? Do you like it best roasted, fried, or baked?
Truthfully, there’s no good way to eat crow. No matter how you prepare it, crow tastes bad. That’s why crow is so hard to eat.
Here’s a modern example. Doug Pederson is taking his Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl.
In 2016, when the Eagles hired Pederson the so-called experts went crazy. “Terrible hire,” one guy said. Another sarcastically tweeted, “My first impression of Doug Pederson is I wonder who the Eagles will hire as head coach in 2017.”
They said things like, “Pederson is less qualified to coach a team than anyone I’ve ever seen in my 30-plus years in the NFL.”
ESPN ranked Doug Pederson as the worst coaching hire in the NFL.
But then the improbable happened. The Eagles started winning. By mid-season, they were the best team in the league.
Finally, its time for the experts to eat some crow, right?
Rather than admit their mistake the so-called experts pointed to the brilliance of the Eagle’s quarterback Carson Wentz. Doug was passed over for coach of the year, but in a backhanded slap, they gave the General Manager of the year to the Eagles GM. He surely deserved it, but Doug also deserved some credit for the Eagle’s winning ways.
Do you hear what they are saying? “Doug didn’t do this, his General Manager gave him such wonderful player personnel that the team wins on its own.” Why can’t they admit that Doug was at least partially responsible?
Even when the Eagles had the best record in the NFL one guy wrote, “Why I still think Pederson was a bad hire.”
Then Wentz went down with a season-ending knee injury. The analysts wrote them off, “Poor Eagles, it was a nice run. Too bad.”
Then the most improbable thing happened. The Eagles continued to win. They beat the Falcons in the first playoff game. The headline read, “Falcons have nobody to blame but themselves.” Then in the NFC championship game, the “underdog” Eagles took the Vikings to the woodshed.
Finally, it’s time to eat some crow, right?
Doug runs the offense. Guess what ESPN’s headline read after the NFC championship blowout. “Prominent defense propels Eagles into the Super Bowl.” Seriously? Sure the defense played great, but a backup QB that was nearly out of the league was 26 of 33 for 352 yards and three TD’s against the number one defense in the league? Doug was magnificent. Why won’t they admit it?
As I’ve tracked Doug Pederson’s unlikely story I’ve been reminded time and again just how badly we hate to admit when we are wrong.
We all hate the taste of crow.
I know I do.
It’s so hard not to defend your mistake or try to walk it back to a more acceptable state of “less wrong.”
That’s true of sports analysts and its true of the rest of us too.
There’s really not a good way to prepare crow, but sometimes you have to eat it anyway. Just close your eyes, open your mouth and chew. You will never be right until you are able to admit that you’re wrong.
Read Psalm 32:3-5.
I love the old comic strip Calvin and Hobbs.
Calvin is in an overstuffed chair, his back to the reader. The TV is bouncing wildly on the stand. Calvin is mesmerized. Calvin’s dad is behind him looking over his shoulder at the Television and Calvin says,
“OH LOOK, YET ANOTHER CHRISTMAS TV SPECIAL. HOW TOUCHING TO HAVE THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS BROUGHT TO US BY COLA, FAST FOOD, AND BEER CONGLOMERATES. WHO’D’ HAVE EVER GUESSED PRODUCT CONSUMPTION, POPULAR ENTERTAINMENT AND SPIRITUALITY WOULD MIX SO HARMONIOUSLY, IT’S A BEAUTIFUL WORLD, ALL RIGHT.”
After his dad leaves the room, Calvin, without ever looking up from the set says,
“DAD DOESN’T HANDLE THE SEASON’S STRESS VERY GRACEFULLY.”
Bill Watterson, the creator of the strip, made an excellent point. Consumerism, entertainment and spirituality really are odd companions.
In fact, when you back up and look at it with cool skepticism, the whole thing is . . .well sort of odd.
For example, why do we drag a dead tree into the house and hang gaudy things all over it? What in the world does that have to do with the birth of Christ?
Imagine a stranger from another land visits your house at Christmas. “Why are you doing that?” he asks. “We are celebrating Christ.” “Oh, who is that?” “He’s the son of God.” “I see,” he says, “your god is a tree.” “Well, no.” “Then he was born in a tree?” “Not exactly.” “Born in a forest?” “No,” you reply, “a stable.” Was it a forested country?” “Actually it was semi-desert.” By now he’s really confused, “So was it a wooden house?” “No, probably a sort of cave.” “Any trees in the stable?” “I seriously doubt it. Mostly cows sheep and goats.”
“So why the tree? Uh, . . . I don’t know.” For that matter, why the lights? Why are we climbing roofs, risking life and limb to string lights that don’t work? I don’t know. But it’s what we do.
And I’m not saying we shouldn’t. I love everything we do. I’m just concerned that the real purpose for the party is being lost in the celebration. Jesus is the reason for this season.
Without Christ Christmas doesn’t make sense.
Let me suggest two things that will help to keep the purpose in your Christmas preparations.
First, don’t allow the busy preparations to keep you from His quiet presence.
Second, in preparing for Christmas don’t allow your material passions to overshadow His spiritual purpose.
