Something to Think About

Evesham Editorial 5th Feb, 2017   0

ONE COLUMNIST in a national daily newspaper this week explained her favourite word of the week was “coddiwomple’.

No; I had not heard of it either, but it is a slang term meaning, “to travel in a purposeful manner in one direction”.

Amazing what new things we can learn each week.

It has been said with modern technology one can assimilate more knowledge in a day than our ancestors did in a lifetime.

There are those who can use that information to “travel in a purposeful manner in one direction”; whilst to some of us it can seem too much to retain.

It is like driving along and coming to a ‘diversion’ sign in the road that does not really give any information as to where we are being led and often leads to confusion.

Jesus Christ came to earth with one purpose and one direction, that of showing us the love and salvation of his Heavenly Father.

He lived in a small village working as a carpenter waiting the right time for him to begin his earthly ministry of showing us the heart of God.

He called his disciples and they followed him “in a purposeful manner in one direction”, although at the time they did not fully realise what the end product would be.

In many churches there is a popular slogan around which says, “Carpenter needs Joiners to follow him”.

Why not join Jesus and “travel in a purposeful manner in one direction”?
