Last night while picking up a few groceries, I noticed that the gum was on sale. I decided to pick up a pack for my husband. This morning I removed the clear paper that it was packaged in and opened the flap. Here's what I saw...
I totally saw the humor in it! But I quickly thought to myself, "This is just about how silly some political correctness is today".
We're about to enter what has traditionally been known as Holy Week. It still might be "politically correct" for many who wouldn't otherwise attend church to go to on Easter Sunday. But it will be MORE politically correct to hide Easter eggs or exchange chocolate treats.
How sad! Easter is more than something to dye for! Where was the political correctness when the spear pierced Jesus' side? Where was the political correctness when an innocent man was condemned and crucified? (Or was it ACTUALLYl political correctness that culminated in this supreme hate crime???)
I'm coming to understand that my faith and belief system is NOT politically correct. "The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." (1 Corinthians 1:18). The sooner I accept this, the quicker I will understand my role as Christ's ambassador urging friends and neighbors to be reconciled to God.
