"That just doesn't make sense!"

Ever hear yourself shout those words? I have. Seems like the older I get, the more I say it. Why does the illogic in the world increase proportionally with the advancement of one's years?

Then, one might experience those really strange times in life when everything around them seems to be spinning out of control. Stuff is happening faster than the Enterprise travels through space. It doesn't make sense. God doesn't make sense. Woah - what was that last statement? God doesn't make sense? He must make sense - after all, He is God! Is that reason enough? Perhaps, but we are not gods. Humans process through a finite, limited function of grey matter nicely protected by thick bone and balanced above one's shoulders. God does not. God is infinite. God is not limited. And we think (sorry, that should be "think") God doesn't make sense? Wow. OK, so God may appear to not make sense. That works. Why? Because at times, He asks or does things that are contrary to our thinking or understanding.

We have been poking around Proverbs, learning about wisdom, and learning how to avoid the traps of Evil.
Now on this Palm Sunday, I want to think about that wisdom, but put it alongside the story of Jesus telling the disciples to go get a colt donkey. Read that story again in the Gospels. Notice something? Jesus doesn't make sense. He has asked his disciples to go to another town, steal a donkey, tell the owner it'll be right back, leave no payment, and bring the colt donkey back to Jesus in Jersulem. Anybody catch the illogic?
So, what would you do if something like that were told to you? No, really, be honest here.

Proverbs 28 and Mark 11 for this Sunday ... and a question of how can we trust ... or how can we get past the illogical stuff while we maintain a relationship with a loving God?
Wave those Palms! See you Sunday.
