Looking forward to February 28
Keeping Up with Sunday
by Rev. Karen Lindvig
February 21, 2016 – “Outside the Box”
Mavericks and rebels think and act outside the box of conventional wisdom. David fought Goliath (I Samuel 17) in an unconventional way when he refused to wear the traditional armor of a warrior. He chose to fight Goliath with a slingshot and defeated the giant.
David knew his gifts and abilities and used them. He represents that part of us that has the courage to express our God given talents and abilities. This is a true maverick.
We too must throw off the armor that has been put on us by our families or culture if it doesn’t fit in order to face the obstacles that block the way to our good.
Gandhi threw off the clothes of the English gentlemen and wore the Indian dhoti. He won India’s independence from the British Empire in an unconventional manner. The same can be said about Nelson Mandela. He faced the Goliath of Apartheid and defeated it – not through war, but through leadership, forgiveness and love.
What is the Goliath standing in your way right now? You are a unique expression of the Divine. When you are willing to be fully present and show up in life as the unique soul that you are and be willing to step outside the box, anything is possible.
