Pause For Thought: 'success has many parents; failure is always an orphan'

Pause For Thought: 'success has many parents; failure is always an orphan'

God must have a wonderful sense of humour. Down here we get caught up in so much nonsense; yet God continues to love us, forgive us and laugh with us.

Isn’t it a pity then that we don’t seem to have the same ability to laugh at ourselves? I believe a sense of humour is a major defense against minor worries. 

As we know, success has many parents; failure is always an orphan. That could be the point this unknown author was making when he highlighted how ridiculous it is to attempt to capture Jesus in our own small corner of the universe. 

I hope his parable will give you a laugh this morning; but don’t laugh so loudly that you miss the point he’s making. Who can really say: ‘Jesus is ours and ours alone?’

The Italians are convinced Jesus had to be Italian because -: He talked with his hands; He made sure everyone got the best wine and he was constantly sharing meals with anyone, anywhere, anytime.

As with everything new, Californians made a strong claim on Jesus too -: He dressed like a hippy with long hair. He wore sandals and He founded another religion.

Not to be outdone, the Irish are convinced Jesus had to be one of us because -: He remained a bachelor all his life; he lived with his mother until he was 33; he was sure his mother was a saint and his mother was sure He was God.

But the most compelling claim of all comes from those who are convinced Jesus was just a mother. He was called on to feed a multitude at a moment’s notice; He kept on trying to get the message across to a bunch of men who hadn’t a clue. And even when he was dead, He rose again, because there was still more work to do.

Now you can either be upset at what you perceive to be irreverent; or you can take your cue from St Paul who said: “I have become all things to all people, so that I might by all means save some.” (I Cor:9:19).
