John: The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

I live in Livingston, and the wind is often the topic of conversation. There is a brewery in the building next to my store/kitchen and their tagline is, "A beer town with a wind problem."

"The wind only blows from Halloween to Easter," said one old-timer.

My former brother-in-law once said that his best friend's father once said that his favorite thing in nature was the wind. When I told him I was moving to Livingston, he suggested I get used to the wind. They often close the Interstate because the wind will blow semis over in the blink of an eye.

It's also a very artsy town with many writers and artists. It has a good feel to it. Maybe it's time to look at the wind as John says, " do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."

Maybe it's time to start appreciating the wind as a reminder of those born of the Spirit. That we are all children of God/Spirit, and that Spirit is within each of us. Maybe it's a call to recognize that Spirit in others and to love and accept them as they are?

Philippians: More than that, I regard everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ

Colossians: But now you must get rid of all such things—anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive language from your mouth.

1 Timothy: Deacons likewise must be serious, not double-tongued, not indulging in much wine, not greedy for money;

2 Timothy: As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these people, of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith, also oppose the truth.

1 John: Everyone who commits sin is a child of the devil; for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.

Revelation: “I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
