Baby Got Back

Hi…Cris here.  I mentor a 15-year-old young lady.   She’s your typical teenager…full of attitude and ready to roll her eyes at your attempts to be cool.  In our time together, I have learned that when she does say something, it’s gonna be good and I better listen! As we were walking to the car after a meeting over a Hardee’s Little Thickburger and Fries, she said to me “You don’t need to wear those pants again…they make your butt look big.” I immediately started laughing but quickly looked at my rear in the Hardee’s window reflection…she was right. It was one of those statements that you didn’t want to hear but was thankful someone had the guts to tell you….kind of like when you have a piece of green-something stuck in your teeth at a party and no one tells you.  You only thought what you were saying was funny…

…Anyway…back to my point.   God is kind of like my mentee.  He is the truth and what He says is the truth.  He also shares the truth with us because He loves us…which I would like to think my mentee was saying her comment out of love.  The questions is…do we want to hear it?  Or, do we want to ignore the truth and continue wearing pants that don’t flatter our rear because we can.  Let’s open our ears to hear His truth…even though it may not be want you want to hear, it’s truth worth listening to because He loves you.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. – John 14:6
