My Thoughts On Quid Pro Quo
Sermons I will never give #2
These days the news if saturated with the term quid pro quo. Was there a pro quo? We all know that there was a quid. So let’s take a moment to analyze this.
I get it, there are people in all camps with all kinds of opinions. Some feel that He has been at it too long, and it is time to get Him out of here, and if there was only a pro quo, then we could be done with Him once and for all.
Others, feel quite the opposite. They feel that this is their Man! There was no pro quo so leave Him alone. Look at yourself they say, when you are pointing a finger at someone else, you are point three fingers right at yourself. In fact, you should really be thanking Him for all that He has done for you!
Others, land somewhere in the middle, and they want to take everything on case by case basis. Don’t judge the Man, judge the actions. replica watches
Now, try this on for size. What if we were in the hot seat, and the question of “was there a pro quo” was for a quid that gave us? Feels very different if we are in that seat. Huh?!
Is it only bad for there to be a quid pro quo if it someone else? Someone in power? Maybe quid pro quo is actually a good thing? Shouldn’t there be a bit of tit for tat? Shouldn’t I have to give to get, and get to give?
Listen, starting Sunday night, Rosh Hashanah, we are going to be meeting Him, and I hope that there is whole lot more quo than quid. You see, I for one know that I do not deserve nearly as much quo that I want and am praying for given the amount of quid I gave. I really do need to pick up my game and be doing a lot more quid-ing this year.
What about you? Do you think He/Him – Hashem of course – (who did you think I was talking about?) has given you more in return for what you gave him this year?
Something to think about.
