What can I say about people of this time? What are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace who call out to each other, “We played music for you, but you did not dance; we sang a sad song, but you did not cry.” John came and did not eat or drink like other people. So people say, “He has a demon.” The son of man came eating and drinking, and people say, “Look at him! He eats too much and drinks too much wine, and he is a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” But wisdom is proved to be right by what it does.
John didn’t eat or drink so they called him mad. Jesus did eat and drink so they called him a glutton and a drunkard. The kingdom of God has plenty of room for diversity. If Jesus withheld judgment, so must we.
GOD, PLEASE GRANT ME THE SELF-DISCIPLINE TO LEAVE THE JUDGING TO YOU AND JUST FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME. AMEN.
