Opinion polls vs. the pudding


“John the Baptizer came fasting and you called him crazy. The Son of Man came feasting and you called him a lush. Opinion polls don’t count for much, do they? The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

The Message; Luke 7: 33-35


Folks were so busy putting John and Jesus in boxes, they missed what was really going on.


How about me then? Am I so focused on what others think, I forget to even try to figure out for myself what it all means? Am I so caught up in expressing opinions, I forget to actually taste the pudding, and double-check reality?


Doesn’t focusing on the wrong stuff ultimately make me disengage? I stop asking questions, stop caring. I abdicate.


So, I miss the announcement, ‘The answer’s coming!’ And then miss the one, ‘The answer’s here!’


But it’s not too late.


Someone gimme a spoon!
