The Name

Will had a game yesterday at 9:30am. It was 37 degrees. Throw in the 15mph wind and it’s subarctic temperatures. We just needed snow to really set the mood.

But the game must go on. Must it?

I was wearing 4 layers of upper body clothing and still freezing. Then I remembered another jacket I had in the car. I got it and man did it help.

I said to Sandra, “This jacket is great! It makes all the difference because it really breaks the wind.”

She looked at me as if I was growing another ear off my chin.

“It’s a windbreaker,” she said.

“I know. I said it was breaking the wind.” Maybe she needs the extra ear.

“No, it’s called a windbreaker because that’s what it does. It breaks the wind. It keeps the wind off your body.”

“Ohhh! That’s a genius idea and a great name for it. It’s called by what it does.”

So if you call yourself a Christian it’s because you do the things Jesus did and said do, right?

“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! (‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭43-44‬ NLT)
