Just a thought to help start your week.
We have adjusted our clocks to reflect the time change. Autumn has officially arrived. Just look around you at all the beautiful mums in a variety of colors, such as this bright yellow one.
I don’t know why this particular plant is called a ‘mum’. Perhaps someone looked at one and said, “Mmmmm, that looks pretty,” and the ‘mmmm’ eventually turned into ‘mum’. Or maybe some kid said, “Hey Mum, I like your pretty flowers!”
Well I doubt either of those scenarios is really true. But regardless of why this plant is called a mum, may it never be that we Christians are called mum. We should be quite the opposite – speaking up, speaking out, and making a difference in this world.
There is no time to be mum! We have an increased urgency to share the Good News with the world around us – a world so dark most days that it desperately needs to see the light.
Enjoy the bright mums this fall season. But even more so, pledge with me – No more mum! I have a story to tell! And folks are truly dying to hear it.
Just a thought.
