Sunday Morning Shout Out no. 2 - Where is Your Hope?

Posted on March 5, 2017 at 9:50 AM

IWhere is your hope? Is it in yourself? Are you self-made and self-actualized? LOL - the only thing good I can think about self is that it stinks! Seriously, how do people into theirselves act? Pompous, conceited, self-serving and self-absorbed. Of course we are all guilty of that at one time or another, but I think you get my drift.


So what about a guru? Will an enlightened teacher of the way help you along life's journeys? Hey, we are all human beings with a mixed bag of genetics that along with environment  and experience help shape our traits, personalities, and outlooks. Jesus called it the blind leading the blind. No one person has a handle on everything, and too often gurus become manipulators and abusers of those who follow them. Even the best intentioned let us down by their all too human frailities. 


So what is the answer? Well, I can tell you where my hope comes in troubled times. Here is an old song by the Cathedrals that I like to listen to when times are tough.

Absolutely true...well stated. It is interesting how many well intentioned "leaders" turn into self absorbed gurus without even realizing.
It's all about that weird disease called pride, which makes everyone sick except the person who has it.

John, a very important new testament prophet , the one who was appointed to announce the coming of Christ, said it well when he spoke of Jesus....he said "He must increase, but I must decrease" (John 3:30). Now there is a challenge to all the self appointed gurus.
