“Come on man”
For those football fans out there who are eagerly waiting for a new season to begin, do you remember the “Come on Man” segment on Monday Night Football? For those of you who don’t, it is the part of the pre-game show where the analysts share their favorite “bonehead” plays of the prior week or weeks. Usually, it is really funny, and that is point of the segment, to poke fun at someone else’s misfortune. For whatever the reason, this came to mind. I thought of two things we can learn from “come on man”. First, it‘s a good thing not to take ourselves too seriously. It’s even a healthy thing to laugh, even if it is at our own expense. If we don’t, we will surely miss out on a lot of humor. Secondly, and on the other hand, let us seek to always encourage, build up and inspire one another. So when it comes to “come on man”, it’s usually wise to keep ourselves as the object of the joke. Love God, live holy, learn daily and laugh hysterically, “for a merry heart does good like a medicine”.
