Thank You Captain Obvious
confession: i tend to hide behind a veil of sarcasm. you could even go as far as to say i thrive in sarcasm. i seek out friendships with those who are the same way. i deflate others’ self-esteem with brilliant poise and razor-sharp wit. let’s face it, sarcasm is a plain girl’s bestfriend. but is it very Christ-like?
- can you be heavily sarcastic in your everyday dialogue and love the Lord at the same time?
- are you a giver of sarcasm or an unsuspecting recipient?
- if you’re a giver, does your clever wit ever shadow Christ or are you simply having fun “Speaking the Truth in Love” (eph. 4:15)?
I think you’d have a field day with me.
Rick – elaborate?
No, yes and yes
First, I think there is a difference between being sarcastic with friends and those you love and being sarcastic with others. Some people get it. My wife is very sarcastic, for example. Its a matter of the heart. She wouldn’t do that to spite someone.
My friends and I communicate through sarcasm, mixed with a healthy dose of encouragment. That’s key to developing relationships. Without the encouragement and love, sarcasm will wear the relationship down.
I also noted the dumb one in the class was named Kevin. Not funny. :o)
Ps. Where would be without Montey Python?
well, i duno. you just have to read the situation…. and make a judgment call. the hard part is, usually the sarcastic people hardly have the self control to hold back 😉 i am also a lover of sarcasm. uhm, the writer of http://thewardrobeandthewhitetree.blogspot.com likes both our blogs so I decided that means we should also be virtual friends. Hahha.
peace and grace and if you wanna read another good blog about africa… read my friend, Ashley’s http://www.reflectioninwater.blogspot.com. she rocks.
So stealing that – Chandler has alwayss been my hero for that quick sarcasm. I can only aspire.
Crystal–I’m a little gullible and can have my head in the clouds sometimes. It makes great fodder for anybody wanting to come along and make fun of my blonde-ness. Even though it’s actually dark colored approaching salt-and-pepper.
On another note, what does a dude need to do to get a link on here?
