"Yesterday's Amazing is Today's Ordinary"

Our daughter has become slightly obsessed with the movie "Charlotte's Web" where this line is from. I've heard it about five times in the last three days. But although it is about a fictitious spider's spelling it really does still hold true in our world.

Think about all the things that were amazing, even imaginary, a century ago. Household electricity, running water, flight, internet, wifi, phones everywhere, foods from around the world. All these things were at one point amazing. Now, if we drop a call or a flight is delayed we get annoyed. Why? Because it's ordinary, it should happen. We expect it.

That's the challenge for this weekend. The story of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection are amazing, but have we heard it so often that it is now ordinary?

Make sure to take some time this week to think about it... and make it amazing again...
