Lent, Day 21

I love this quote from Frederick Buechner about following Jesus.

Under a Delusion
If the world is sane, then Jesus is mad as a hatter and the Last Supper is the Mad Tea Party.  The world says, Mind your own business, and Jesus says, There is no such thing as your own business.  The world says, Follow the wisest course and be a success, and Jesus says, Follow me and be crucified.  The world says, Drive carefully- the life you save may be your own- and Jesus says, Whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his live for my sake will find it.  The world says, Law and order, and Jesus says, Love. The world says, Get and Jesus says, Give.  In terms of the world's sanity, Jesus is crazy as a coot, and anybody who thinks he can follow him without being a little crazy too is laboring less under a cross than under a delusion.  

May you be a little crazy today...
