The images in the photo above are from the afternoon of Wednesday, December 29, 2021. Those leads were glued to me and used in the cardiac cath lab at IU/Methodist Hospital for the camera under/over me during the angiogram. The thing at the bottom is my wristband, and I’ll explain the 12-29 sticker further in a moment, but it’s obviously the date I was there and they made me wear it when I walked in.

While getting ready for work one morning, I was listening to a minister on TV as he talked about Jesus’ admonition to Martha. Jesus was speaking words of life to those gathered around, while Martha was consumed with the preparation of the meal. She was upset that her sister Mary wasn’t helping. Instead, Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to His every word. But when Martha asked Jesus to have Mary come help her, Jesus said, “Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”The minister’s question was, “What if Martha had also chosen to sit and listen to Jesus? Who would have provided dinner for the group?” The minister maintained they could have eaten from the banquet table of heaven – just like the feeding of the five thousand. Now that is totally out there, and completely foreign to our humanly way of thinking.
But if you think about it, most of what Jesus said is foreign to our way of thinking. Were we to really believe what Jesus said, and live as Jesus lived, we’d appear as aliens to the world around us!
If you’ve ever seen an episode of the ‘Mork and Mindy’ show, it’s similar to the dilemma in which a true Christian finds himself. Mork was from another planet, and in order to function on the Earth, his old way of thinking and doing had to change. The entire series was about him adapting to the earth’s way of doing things, just so people wouldn’t know he was an alien. Although there are similarities between Mork’s situation and that of a Christian, there are vast differences.
