To go against the “norm”–against all popular cultural, social and mental practices–to make the ones you love on earth just a little bit nervous in the pursuit of making the One you love in heaven proud, THAT, my friend, is nothing to be ashamed of. A Christian is called to be socially ridiculous! If we are not living outside of our comfort zones–indeed, if we even have one– something is drastically wrong!
Make a fool of yourself!
Jesus did it all the time.
