A Confetti Sermon

Generally speaking, I'm a moderate, or at least try to be...politically, theologically, intellectually, socially, dietarily, physically, emotionally, and so on. The ancient Greeks were on to something when they preached moderation in all things.

Well, not exactly all things.

In Galatians 5, Paul lists the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  It seems to me that moderation in these things would be stingy, tepid, a poor harvest. We want to grow LOTS of the fruits of the spirit, right? I mean, most people, whether they are Christian or Jewish or Buddhist or Muslim or Hindu or Atheist or Other, believe that these fruits are good things. Worthy things. Things we all need more of.

And that's why this sentiment from Hero Arts fills my heart with joy.

How might you throw the spiritual fruit of kindness around like confetti this weekend? Let's be egregious, excessive, immoderate, generous in kindness...and maybe some of the other fruits of the spirit as well.

Heaven knows our world needs more of that sort of extremism.
