Aaannyways, as i was saying, THIS MORNING
I am headed to "non traditional" orientation for the fall semester classes at BSU...which I find inconvenient.
I'm also going with my aunt. :)
"How?/why?" you say? "are you afraid //meg??"
No no, yesterday I found that my aunt (respectably, yet not extremely older) is ALSO just beginning her adventure to a degree. and she needed a ride. In respect I must say that this is also inconvenient.
As the alarm went off I was just thinking to myself, "This is going to be interesting. Today is SUCH a non traditional day!" Then I was convicted about the love of God.
It's NOT traditional. If it were, non of us even deserve it. Alot of times In our humanistic minds, our first response to love is to love those that give us a reason to love them...or when it's convenient.
How selfish. I'm glad Christ doesn't love us only when we give him a reason to. I want my life to be Non traditional in the sense that I LOVE unconditionally, like Christ does. In my job, in school, in my family, with my friends...with complete strangers. I want to MAKE that my tradition. Not so I live by tradition, or condition; but that I live in SUBMISSION to the example of Christ. I believe that there is a level of God's love that we can't understand until we begin to practice it.
I love the message translation of the Bible. It also is so non traditional.
John 3:16-17"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.
Have a NON TRADITIONAL/NEW TRADITIONAL day!
