Sermon, Sunday April 26, 2015

I got cut from the Junior Boys football team in grade 9. The coach told me I was too small. At 5’2″ I didn’t measure up.  On the spot, my life long dream of being the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys was dashed. That was the first time I remember not measuring up,  and it wasn’t the last. When matters of  physical height became less important, other matters like how smart I was, what school would accept me, which girls liked me (more to the point, didn’t like me!) all became the new measurable that I would fail to reach. Jesus knows the human reality of failing to measure up and has just the thing to make things right.
