In his blog he is talking about how he has decided to answer people who ask him “Why?” he left being a full-time paid pastor. I am not a pastor, but I am closer to that feeling than ever before. But it’s tough knowing what to do.
I remember, though, something Jesus said in Matthew 13:44.
The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Sadly I feel like I’ve had to be pushed to selling all I have, so to speak. I haven’t been that joyful. Finding the treasure is amazing, but why am I not over joyed by this discovery?
Maybe it’s what you have to sell or forsake. Maybe it has been so valuable for so long, that it’s hard. Maybe I need a slap in the face to realize the treasure I have been given. Nothing else matters. Be happy, be glad, be overjoyed…
What else is there? Stop doing what I can’t do anymore…
Sol: I just can’t do it anymore Bob.
Bob: Then why are you still doing it?
Sol: That’s not the point.
Bob: You know you’re an idiot, right?
Sol: That’s not the point either.
Bob: Stop Doing it.
Sol: But I can’t just stop doing it.
Bob: Sounds like you can’t stop not doing it.
Sol: Now you’ve made me mad, I’m done talking to you.
Bob: Then why are you still standing here?
Sol: Can you give me a ride to my house?
Bob: Hop in.
