IMG_4311I was listening to a radio program today about “noise vs silence,” as it pertains to our everyday lives.  It got me thinking, hence this post (where I often unload my learnings).  We choose noise. Today, alone, I chose the noise of Spotify when I went running. I chose the noise of “Mike and Mike” when I wanted to hear Superbowl opinions. I chose noise when I decided to listen to that radio program in my car.  I chose noise when I put the TV on in the background as I put away groceries. So I’ve made my case that I (and you) chose noise. And Jesus chose noise too. He chose to be in the noisy Temple when they turned it into a Festival Flea Market. He chose noise when He walked into a town, unwanted or unexpected. But in as much as Jesus chose noise, He also chose silence (if you want verses that back this up, email me). Which, of course, got me thinking. If Jesus chose silence, should I? I think I know the answer. There’s an old saying, “Silence is golden.” Guess what? Heaven is golden too! Maybe I would have more moments of Heaven on Earth, if I chose more times to be silent in them…
