This post has nothing to do with Small Church Youth Ministry. Just God, kids and one woman’s mixed emotions.
I was sitting in a hotel room Sunday night and checked in on Twitter…which was, of course, buzzing about the VMA’s. So I first watched JT – awesome! That’s talent and I teared up a little about his inclusion of N*SYNC in his Vanguard Award. Still a fan of Bye-Bye-Bye. You should see me do the moves. Its…unbelievable.
Miley and Robin? I still don’t know exactly what to say or think. It was the buzz all through three airports Monday as I traveled home.
My thoughts are mixed, on one hand vs the other:
On one hand: What was she thinking?
The other: Who was doing her thinking for her?
On one hand: She knows better.
The other: Does she really? Who didn’t do stupid stuff in their 20’s? I mean REALLY stupid?
On one hand: She’s probably ruined her career.
The other: No she hasn’t. People will still watch. Who’s fault is that? Theirs.
On one hand: It was SO not children appropriate.
The other: Why were children allowed to watch in the first place?
On one hand: Where was her dad?
The other: She’s a grown woman.
On one hand: She wasn’t alone on stage, btw.
The other: Yeah, what about Robin Thicke?
On one hand: What about her professed Christianity?
The other: Good thing salvation isn’t based on the VMA’s.
On one hand: What about our students? She wasn’t a good role model.
The other: All the more reason for us to do what we do. BE the difference.
On one hand: What must God think?
The other: He loves her (and Robin) and wants THE very best for them. Jesus came for them, too.
