In the words of Bob Newhart playing Dr. Switzer in an SNL comedy sketch, “STOP IT!”
I was smack-dab in the middle of putting two brilliant pieces of the Revelation puzzle together for you when I was interrupted by my family’s high-maintenance need for dinner.
My daughter entered the kitchen as I was slicing the avocado:
“So this young, engaged couple from my church has a gofundme page to pay for their wedding.”
“What?! That is wrong on so many levels.”
“The appeal, which was supposedly the groom’s best friend’s idea, is based on the fact that they are young and cannot afford the wedding of their dreams.”
“The groom said, ‘God has shown us what kind of wedding He wants us to have,’ but I say, God wants you to have the kind of wedding you can AFFORD.”
To which I added, “God wants you to have integrity and a little self-respect.”
“I know what they’re probably thinking. They think that they are supposed to invite tons of people to their wedding because their love is such a great testimony.”
“Great testimony to what? Do they think theirs is the first love story? Do they think they are the first couple in the history of Christian couples to do it right? Or is theirs a gutter to glory story?”
It doesn’t matter. Fund your own dang wedding youngsters, just like generations before you.
I’m too bugged to get my head back in the Revelation zone. I’ll finish that post tomorrow.
Hope your Sunday was restful and worshipful. Mine was iced in.
