When my friend Jennifer wrote about Rich Mullins on her blog, it got me in a nostalgic frame of mind. I pulled out my Rich Cd's. It had been way too long since I had listened to them.
The other day, while still in that nostalgic mind set, I found some Rich quotes on Wikipedia and this one was so good I had to include it. Just a funny reminder.
"I had a professor one time, he said, 'Class, you will forget almost everything I teach you in here, so please remember this; God spoke to Balaam through his ass and He has been speaking through asses ever since. So, if God should choose to speak through you, you need not think too highly of yourself. And, if on meeting someone, right away you recognize what they are, listen to them anyway.' "
I have always loved God's sense of humor~ Balaam's story is a great example of it.
Here's to not taking ourselves too seriously!!
