You ever feel like you’ve got this Christian walk thing down? You’re coasting along, feeling like you’re doing pretty good when suddenly the Lord throws a celestial banana peel into your path. Then there you are, flailing wildly, and you turf it. Hard. And suddenly you can see that your footing was not nearly as securely planted as you thought. Ouch.
I was not planning to write a post about Halloween. No sir, no how. That topic is one buffalo chip I had no desire to step in. I still don’t. In fact, I have no intention of revealing my own stance on it. That is perhaps a post for another year if the Lord leads me to share. What I wish to address today isn’t really about the holiday at all. It is about our diverse reactions to it.
