Graffiti

James 1:2–4 My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.

I hopped on the bus the other day – and it was pretty full, so I ended up sitting right at the back on that bench that runs from left to right.
Now this was a brand new, clean, air–conditioned bus – so you can imagine my disappointment when I saw the hot pink graffiti plastered over the seats and the walls around me.

The perpetrators even signed their names – a boy and a girl.

It kind of boggles my mind the immaturity required to do something like that. Why can’t people just grow up?!

But as I was contemplating this senseless act, I just had this sense that our sin – your sin, my sin – it’s a bit like that graffiti. It’s born out of an immaturity – you know when we throw a tantrum. Maybe it looks a bit like that graffiti to God. Because let’s be honest, some of the things we do sometimes are pretty senseless, they’re pretty immature and they’re just like that graffiti.

Maybe it’s time we just … grew up.
