TAKING A DAY OFF

A few years before he died, the wonderful  Reggae musician Bob Marley was preparing to sing and play at a peace rally. A few days before the event someone broke into his house and shot him. Everyone thought the concert would be cancelled, but Bob and his group “The Wailers “ showed up anyway. “What are you doing here,” people asked, ”You should be home healing.”

Marley’s reply was, “The people who are trying to make the world worse are not taking a day off, how can I?” “Light up the darkness!”*

                    

 

 

             

                    

 

Christ in Training does not take a day off.

Is it work? Yes. Is it work to love? It is work to forgive? It is work to be compassionate?

But, I think after awhile we do not have to hold it as work anymore. It simply becomes what one of my teachers calls “doing your being.”

*(I heard this quote in the movie “I Am Legend” with Will Smith)
