Robin Williams is a master of comedy. I especially like his improvisations and this one about the very young AND very smart is one of his best!!! What we laugh at says a lot about us, for it reveals our prejudices. When it comes to being a Christian, we are to live beyond prejudice though the love that dwells in our hearts. This passage from the book of Romans gives us a laundry list that proves helpful...
Romans, Chapter 12
9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil. Cling to that which is good. 10 In love of the brothers be tenderly affectionate one to another; in honor preferring one another; 11 not lagging in diligence; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope; enduring in troubles; continuing steadfastly in prayer; 13 contributing to the needs of the saints; given to hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless, and don’t curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice. Weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Don’t set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Don’t be wise in your own conceits. 17 Repay no one evil for evil. Respect what is honorable in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as it is up to you, be at peace with all men. 19 Don’t seek revenge yourselves, beloved, but give place to God’s wrath. For it is written, “Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 Therefore
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him.
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
for in doing so, you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
21 Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
While we may laugh at a two year old that is savvy about computers, this world is quickly changing into one where the techno-generation will laugh at us for being uncool! The simple truth is that we need to accept others as they are; not for what we want them to be. God's ways are the best ways, no matter if you work with an abaccus or a calculator or a main frame computer (even a pencil and paper works too) God can mold your heart if you are willing!!!
