Have you heard the phrase; he/she marches to the beat of a different drummer? It’s meant as a backhanded compliment indicating that she/he is not like us.

I don’t think the kind of community, the kind of connections God wants us to have should be based on finding people just like us and building walls to keep the others out.

God’s the drummer and He has a different beat for each of us.

Still exploring Bob Goff’s “Love Does”:

“I used to think God guided us by opening and closing doors, but now I know sometimes God wants us to kick the doors down.”

When we know we’ve heard from God we can confidently follow His direction no matter what the opposition might be, even as Christ demonstrated unto death. Sometimes there aren’t even doors but walls to be chipped away at, scaled or gone around.
