Thursday Thoughts  

Question:  Tell me about the favorite name in your family.

Readings:  Habakkuk 1:1-4, 2:1-4
     The world is upside down!
     Quote from the New Living Bible:  "Write it on a Billboard."  What a wonderful statement of hope in the work that God will do for us!  Write it on a billboard!
     Assurance that God will come at the appointed time, not on our schedule.
     Habakkuk means "a garden plant."
          Might be from outside Judah--certainly from outside the expected sources.
          Where have you heard God's voice from an unlikely place?

Luke 19:1-10
     Zacchaeus (name means "Pure and Righteous"  Extra irony, anyone?)
     Is Zacchaeus short or is Jesus short?  The Greek is actually unclear!
     Give away half your wealth, and you'll be in better relationship?
     Where is the joy and the humor in the story?
     Is the crowd jealous of Zack's new relationship?

Giving is always a response to God's call, not a requirement for blessing!
