Preaching to The Choir

I know.  This is not a typical Christmas Message.  If you want it to be a typical Christmas Message – GO FOR IT!  By the way, I plan to leave this message up until  January 6th.  Yes.   THAT January 6th – my birthday (smile).  Notice how that day now has a different meaning?  Hmmm.    Why Do We Celebrate January 6th?  

The other day I was enjoying a great conversation with a mentor and he was passionate about a topic.  He then said, “Well, I am preaching to the choir.”

We hear that all the time.

Thanks to God, I had a tremendous response to my mentor when he apologized using, “I am preaching to the choir.”

“No you aren’t!  You are giving me inertia to continue on the path I am walking!!”  (I have now learned “inertia” is the wrong word!)

We both thought – WOAH!  WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?  Answer:  GOD.

I looked up the origin of “preaching to the choir.”  Sure makes sense to me.

Yet, couldn’t that ‘preaching to the choir’ be some form of “societal-kinetic-energy?”  Definition of Kinetic Energy

Part of the definition of Kinetic Energy:  If we want to accelerate an object, then we must apply a force. Applying a force requires us to do work. After work has been done, energy has been transferred to the object, and the object will be moving with a new constant speed.

When someone “preaches to the choir” couldn’t it be the force needed to keep the work moving?  I do.  Could we be the object?  Seriously!

We need people to remind us (preach to the choir) what our (my case – Christian male) mission is!

So, the next time you hear someone “preaching to the choir,” please consider it to be a form of “spiritual-kinetic-energy.”  The message is meant to keep you moving forward.  It is meant to give you energy!

In a world that seems to be grinding our gears or keeping us stuck in muck, we need energy.  To keep us moving forward, we need God’s “spiritual-kinetic-energy.”  Closer to Him.  PREACH! PREACH! PREACH AWAY!  I need that energy!  So do you.  For 2024, INCREASE that energy.  Share that loving-energy with as many people as you can!  That loving-energy will be returned to you like a hug.  A hug is one of those rare times that you give and receive at the exact same time.

Thank you very much for all the time you gave me by reading these articles this year.  I am not the best writer.  However, content over syntax.  I am a simple man simply writing.  I hope you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a very happy and productive 2024.  LOVE YA AND YES, GOD BLESS.
