Here’s a reflection on the “foolishness” of Jesus. It was written by Frederick Buechner.
(inspired by 1 Corinthians 2:6-8, 1 Corinthians 3:18-19)
If the world is sane, then Jesus is mad as a hatter...The world says, Law and order, and Jesus says, Love. The world says, Get, and Jesus says, Give. In terms of the world's sanity, Jesus is crazy as a coot, and anybody who thinks we can follow him without being a little crazy too is laboring less under a cross than under a delusion.
