The spot light goes out. Its back to the ordinary. Its back to your being just you. Are you the same as when you are on stage? Or are you two…the one on stage as “the performer” and “the other” who is hard to please and breaches every trust of God and man. Is your tongue forked?
What if it is only a child who could not understand a great orator like yourself? Do you go on stage for just a little one?
What if its a crowd of one? Does your ego tremble in defeat? The “house” was not sold out, there is only one person attending. Its just the homeless bum that sneeked in a side door. His stench fills the balcony. Is it still worth your time to go on stage?
Do you fill with fear and go blank with stage fright? Do you follow a script learned in grade school? A canned speech? Or do you fill with the passion and compassion of God and pour out to the crowd?
Who are you when its your turn to speak?…
The crowd hushes to hear you, after all the spot light is on you.
Its your turn!
