As Good Friday approaches, I decided to share this thought and small incident.
Considering who He is, He epitomizes humility.
A few years ago, when Lisa and I met her godparents at a parking lot, we wanted their blessing. Katherine is Irish and John a Singaporean Chinese, but they had settled in the USA decades ago and were visiting Singapore. Instinctively, Lisa and I went down on our knees and it blew their mind, what with people and cars passing. For us, it was a natural position to receive blessings from our parents.
This is not extraordinary, as in many cultures, it is customary to bow low and to even touch forehead to earth – yes, in this day and age.
Whatever our Faith and how-so-ever we address Him, it matters not,
But only that we pray and never forget our “roots” and He who nourishes us.
A dialogue between Father and Son.
