How are you known?

spidey.jpgIf you know my son, you know that on any given day he could be any Marvel, Warner Bros., or Disney character created.  It’s so funny with each month that goes by his fascination with the various character’s change.  Right now it is Spider-Man 3.  He changes clothes and costumes throughout the movie.  I remember taking him to see Superman Returns at the theatre… he wore his Superman costume.  I’m not sure who got more attention my son or the movie screen.

Last Summer I had one of those moments that I would not have missed for the world.  We went to Six Flags and all of the Warner Brothers Characters were roaming the park.  He loved meeting them all.  But the moment when he realized we were standing in front of all of his Superhero idols… the moment literally took his breath away.  It was priceless.

He changes persona’s like the weather changes.  It’s fun to see a 5 year old change like this.  But I hope that when people look at me they see consistency.  I hope when people know they are going to be around me they know what to expect.  That my mood, attitude, interests, etc. isn’t always a guessing game.  More importantly I want my testimony in following Jesus to be consistent and growing.  I don’t want to ever be caught “playing games” with my faith in Jesus.

“If you grow a healthy tree, you’ll pick healthy fruit.  If you grow a diseased tree, you’ll pick worm-eaten fruit.  The fruit tells you about the tree. Matthew 12:33, The Message.

What kind of fruit is your life producing?
