Julia was in a play tonight at the church right across the street from us. The play was about the story of Nicodemus and the Pharisees and how Nicodemus came to believe in Jesus. What hit home though throughout the play was that we as humans LOVE to make rules. Rules about almost anything and how incredibly stupid most of them really are. Maybe we do it to feel important or maybe we need them to feel safe. I think if we all lived by maybe 2 or 3 rules - like love, forgiveness and generosity - maybe we wouldn't need all of those other rules. Maybe if we could live as God wants us to live we wouldn't need rules at all.
