Strong Bad might have felt like he didn’t need Pecs because he was “AA”, but “All Abs” is not the only “AA” answer. There are any number of other answers you could give, “Alcoholics Annonymous”, “Amy & Andrew“, or “Arbitrary Answers” would fit too. Ansel Adams is also an viable answer. On this occasion Ansel Adams is also the correct answer…. that is, if the question was “who made the following quote?”
“Millions of men have lived to fight, build palaces and boundares, shape destinies and societies; but the compelling foce of all times has been the foce of originality and creation profoundly affecting the roots of the human spirit”
We all want to press our fingerprints into other peoples lives don’t we. That proof that we are unique & add something irreplaceable to the world around us. We may not even want other people to be able to notice it, but secretly we find comfort in knowing that the mark might be there, like initials in wet cement.
I wonder though, what drives this force. Is it the need to apply those gifts that God has lavished upon his people, or is it something darker? Is that drive at the “root of the human spirit” that of sin itself? Do we want to see ourselves on the dais, glorified before the people. Are we inflated and driven with our need to proove our self-worth? A pride that says we are incomparable? Rather than glorifying God through the gifts he has given us, we seek to use those gifts to declare outselves God?
Something for you to think about as you drift off to sleep tonight as you drift off to sleep.
