Lost in Translation

Words can sometimes get lost in translation. Jeanne M. Fox, a regional administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency, travelled extensively abroad and took note of several signs intended to inform American tourists. She remembers an airline ticket office in Copenhagen boasted, “We take your bags and send them in all directions.” A Swiss restaurant said, “Our wines leave you with nothing to hope for.” An Acapulco hotel wanted to assure its guests with this sign at the front desk, “The manager has personally passed all the water served here.” But her favorite sign was posted in one of the finer hotels in Paris, “Please leave your values at the front desk.”

The world can get a bit uncomfortable for Christians from time to time. As we are traveling through this life, we will often be asked to “check our values” at the door and pick them up later. We should never become so comfortable on our visit that we forget we are here representing another world.

Romans 12:2

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I love you all,

meadow grass and leads me

beside the quiet streams.
