Twisted Take Number 1

Yup, the Nebraska team, like its former mates Oklahoma and Colorado, took school seriously and went home after one game in the tournament. The Nebraska women's team won its first-round game in the tournament. I guess they're just not as serious about their education. Ah, the turn of a viewpoint, the twisting of our take on the situation, we can always make something look better or worse, or perhaps just a bit different by looking at it from a different angle.

Indeed, the natural view may be that Jesus just came to show us up, to make us look bad by living the perfect sinless life. However, John 3:17 gives us the heavenly view: "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." The worldly view is that the commandments are to keep us from doing what we want or having any fun. But the heavenly view is toward our not hurting ourselves through actions of hate and disrespect. No one could keep the law, but God sent a better way in His Son. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

Enjoy the week in Christ Jesus!
