Sometimes it seems people say the most stupid of things, but often i wonder if the stupidity is on the part of the speaker or the listener. Consider this comment to Jesus…
“It took forty-six years to build this Temple, and you’re going to rebuild it in three days?”~the crowd’s response to Jesus.
Supposing you were standing in the crowd waiting for the show to start and Jesus said something about building a superstructure in 3 days. Would you consider the statement pretty stupid or intriguing? Would you blow Him off or would you be drawn to Him and want to hear more?
In fact, I do say some pretty stupid things. Sometimes, God chooses to uniquely be in the middle of the supposed stupidity. It is in these times, those that have ears may choose to hear.
Funny how “stupid” jumps like a monkey to the other side… Whose shoulder is your monkey squatting on today?
