Wearing the Mickey Ears

If you've ever been to the "World" of Disney, then you will completely understand what I'm about to write. While in the "world" you will see people all over wearing Mickey Ears... proudly... without any hesitations at all. There are big Goofy Hats, big Minnie Mouse headbands, Hollywood Studios cone hats, Buzz Lightyear hats.. anything crazy... that Disney fans wear around just in honor of where they are and for the fun of it. No one looks at you crazy if you're wearing a Mickey headband with feathers out of the top... even if you're 38..You just wear it and don't think about it. Even our teenager wore the Minnie Feather hat proudly all week. We buy these things and wear them knowing full well that we would never come home and wear these hats to school or the grocery store or anywhere but Disney.. or maybe a costume party.

Well, this got me thinking while we were riding buses from park to park looking at all of the Disney fans proudly wearing their gear.. It made me think of my life, or OUR lives, as Christians. Do we wear our "Christian" hats when we're just surrounded by Jesus lovers, or do we wear them always? Are we proudly honoring Christ in all circumstances, even when it's not the popular thing, or are we putting our hats away when we're not in the comfort zone of other Christians. It's just a thought and a good reminder to me, and I hope to you :)

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
