Church of the Commandments

The future Church of the Commandments in Clinton Township, Michigan.

 

How many of you can resist making a snowball when the snow is at that perfect wet packing stage? It is a grand temptation for myself, especially if there are a lot of moving targets around. One New Year’s Eve I was at a missionary’s house, when we got a good foot of snow. All of the missionary families were getting together to celebrate. So all of the missionary kids were at the house too. A snowball fight was irresistible. Everyone sought shelter where they could. Though it is proper to seek shelter in our Father, one of the boys took this truth a bit literally that night, and hid behind a lighted nativity scene, using the baby Jesus as a human shield… or a divine-human shield. I don’t know which was the worse crime:
1) hiding behind Jesus, while pummeling others with snowballs,
2) drawing fire on yourself, when Jesus might be the casualty, or
3) the guy who disregarded the sacred manger, aimed, misfired and hit the baby Jesus with a snowball, knocking out the light of the nativity scene?

And to think that the guilty party was a member of the clergy… the shame of it all. What comforts me, I, the one guilty of this crime, is that Jesus forgave even those who crucified him. The moral of this story: When aiming for Jesus, do so with faith, not snowballs.

Today we want to consider how well we aim our faith at Jesus. We need to be reminded how the majority of this world has aimed for God, but very few have leveled their crosshairs on the true God. Many hunt for God, but because their faith is misplaced and off center, their trust is of more harm than good. Like my poorly aimed snowball, instead of hitting the intended target, it knocked the light out of Christ.
