Brogue (John 13.34-35)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “brogue.”  I would like to give a shout out to all my Irish brothers and sisters out there.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!  My favorite part about working for Uncle Sam on a day like today is that I know that wearing the uniform makes certain that I will not get pinched :-) Today’s passage is a reminder that we are all part of one family, no matter what our ethnic heritage.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” ~Jn. 13:35

My question is: when people think about you, how do they know you best.  When we think of different ethnic groups, cultures, or people in general, we can always pretty much identify them by the way that they look, act, and sound.  For us as Christians, people should know us by the fact that we love both one another, and people that are not in the family of God.  So, on St. Patrick's Day we talk with a certain brogue to sound more like our Irish brethren.  This should be a reminder that each day we need to approach others with our spiritual accent, which is love.

Praying for you,
