“Where is your monkey squatting today?”~priest

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?

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Hey Archie;

    Not “stupid” things. I don’t think there is such a thing as “stupid”, although we have all used that term.

    Who is smart?

    It is all a matter of perspective I suppose. I think out loud and sometimes I stretch the limits to see where it leads.

    Some people think I am stoopid.

    I just raise all the possibilities is all.

    Sometime the most ridiculous thing could be perceived as stupid, until someone makes it work. 🙂

  2. I love the story that the Wright Brothers had a preacher dad. He condemned the heresy that man would fly. Shortly after, his sons became the first pilots…

    Yes, my high school English teacher said she thought I was smart. That is until I opened my mouth.

    But shortly after, she opened hers.. ~just sayin’
