A recent 12th grader story….

A couple of weeks ago I read a news story which got me thinking deep.

A young 12th grader girl, was penalised by the school authorities for wearing extra short, shorts. Enraged by the punishment, the young girl printed out 14-15 posters condemning the school for her penalty and how they should be teaching the ‘boys’ to respect women irrespective of what they wear!!! She later took this whole thing on to twitter, FB and the issue went viral. The young girl got overwhelming appreciations for her ‘act of bravery’ and her ‘heroism’ from all over the world!!!

Jesus’ life was a rather lonely life. He toiled, prayed and labored day and night to do exactly what His Father told Him to do. He walked among people healing them, loving them and teaching them the ways of God. But the name He had among people was “a glutton, demon possessed, drunken man”!!! Matthew 11:19!!! His own brothers didn’t believe Him….. but Jesus was doing the perfect will of the Father!!!!

What contrasting attitudes toward life!!!! The former ‘lives’ for self…. while Christ and His followers are called to ‘die’ to self!!! 

To Jesus all that mattered was the approval of God the Father!!! He did what God told Him to do each day and found Joy in pleasing God alone!!!

Whats the point if I have the approval of the entire humanity and yet fail before the eyes of my Creator??? I have gained nothing….. nothing at all!!!

Live your life pleasing to God…. coz in the end….. when you and I draw our last breath in this world, we are not going to meet the several thousands who appreciated our ‘bravery’ on twitter and FB, but a Mighty Holy God to whom we are accountable for our words and deeds!!!

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Mark 8:36


One life to love, One life to cherish,

Life is best lived,

when it is lived God’s way!!!!
