Everybody “Act Medium” by Charles R. Swindoll
We love, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
The children worked long and hard on their little cardboard shack. It was to be a special spot---a clubhouse, where they could meet together, play, and have fun. Since a clubhouse has to have rules, they came up with three:
1. Nobody act big.
2. Nobody act small.
3. Everybody act medium.
Not bad theology!
In different words, God says the very same thing: "regard one another as more important than yourselves" (Philippians 2:3).
Just "act medium." Believable. Honest, human, thoughtful, and down-to-earth.
