Changing Teams

a Biblical thought...
David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, cymbals and trumpets. (1 Chronicles 13:8)

a Book thought...
I am not asked to impersonate the Holy Spirit but to live a life that gives off God's fluorescence. (p114)
a Dave thought...
It was a fun yesterday to spend an hour with the two boys at the Glenferrie Festival. This annual community celebration involves closing Glenferrie Rd down so only pedestrians can access this 1km strip of shops. As we wandered along Noah was drawn to the Hawthorn Football Club stall, so I begrudgingly agreed to take a photo of him with the 2008 premiership cup. As I raised Noah as a West Coast supporter it has been disturbing watching him move across to the dark side and barrack for another team. Although it is just a footy team I know a little bit now of how it feels as a parent to have your child reject what you wholeheartedly believe in. I'm sure there will be more changes as we journey through life together, but I pray that we will always agree on the things that matter most in life - a love for God and a love for others.

Just a thought.
