Think about a banana smoothie. It doesn’t pretend to be anything else. It doesn’t desire more than what it is. Its cool and delicious and it is aware of that and willing to share it. And when you combine it with something else, it gets even better. Throw some strawberry in that smoothie, or maybe a little chocolate, and woah buddy, you’ve got something good going on.
Maybe we should be more like banana smoothies. Aware of who we are and what we have to offer. Aware of our need for other people to come into our lives and change us. Unafraid to add new things and see what happens, even if it turns out to be a mess. Living unashamedly and authenticly. Caught up in something beautiful and offering it to the world.
Pure and beautiful. A cold banana smoothie on a hot day. A heart revolution. Not so different.
