The following statements came across my computer screen via @rascaltweets today. I don’t know the gentleman personally, but he followed me on Twitter so I did the polite thing and followed him back. That sounds kinda strange. How exactly is it possible to follow someone who’s following you? Only in Twitter-Land. That and maybe time travel. But now I understand why people who don’t Tweet look at me funny (well, one of the many reasons they look at me funny). They just don’t understand the lingo. Bless their hearts!
Anyhoo…back to the important part. These are some things Chris Brady tweeted today.
A Rascal is any individual who has the character to be a character.
A Rascal is someone who makes a difference by being different.
A Rascal doesn’t follow the herd; but he or she does protect it.
A Rascal is an original character; one who can’t be classified, minimized, silenced, or enslaved.
Rascals are rebels WITH a cause.
Do these statements describe anyone you know? Several people came to my mind – IMMEDIATELY.
After reading over them several times I realized all of those statements were true of the greatest character who ever lived. Go ahead, I know you want to re-read them. I’ll wait.
Now, don’t you agree? Couldn’t all of those statements be used to describe Jesus and His earthly ministry? (If you didn’t take the opportunity to read them before, you’re doing it now, aren’t you?)
I absolutely LOVE Rascals! They don’t always make life easier, but they do make it richer!
So, who are the rascals in your life?
Are you a rascal?
Do you want to be?
