Here's your sign...

Years ago, Bill Engvall (a comedian) produced a hit song with another country artist called "Here's Your Sign." The premise of the video was that we share the planet with some not do bright people and it would be easier if we could just hand them a sign so that others would be warned.

In our society today, we are quick to give labels, or signs to ourselves and others. You have heard many of them: Stupid, Idiot, Queer, Fag, Slut...; the list goes on and on and on. Labels, names, and w=verdicts that we place on one another to categorize who we think they are based on the slight evidence that we have available.

But, what if we had more knowledge? What if we knew of the battles and hardships, and attacks that people had walked through? What if instead of trying to label someone with a term that we had decided on we used a different scale? What if we saw people the way GOD sees people? What if we were to call people by the name CHRIST uses? What if instead of the father of lies (Satan) controlling our judgments of others, we allowed the SPIRIT of GOD to name them?

We live in a society that is divided into teams. Divided into to "us vs. them" everywhere we look and listen. Yet the WORD tells us that w are all children of GOD (even those who do not believe), and that HE is patient wanting all of us to reconcile with our PAPA.

Therefore, my prayer for you today is that you would be given your sign. The name that PAPA has given to you to wear in front of us all... maybe this video can give you some ideas.

May you hear GOD call you by name today.

simply HIS,
jb
