I will post a video at some point which shows a juggler we saw while on vacation. He was a street performer and was really very, very good. The girls were captivated by him. As I watched him I learned something…and no, it wasn’t how to juggle. I learned that when you have a bunch of stuff up in the air at the same time, you will sometimes drop something. But I learned that if the people you are juggling for want you to succeed, they want you to amaze them, then they are quick to forgive, quick to cheer, and quick to encourage.
Do you feel like you are juggling projects (stuff) in life? Do the people around you cheer you on if you slip up and drop something or do they condemn you for not being perfect?
You know what happened as I/we watched this juggling man juggle and cheered him on? As more cheered and encouraged him, he did better and better….he succeeded. I just wonder how many of us would do better at/in life if we had a crowd around us that supported us. This is the type of church I am trying to build….a church for jugglers….
