Have you ever been asked to do the unreasonable? In 1 Samuel 14, Jonathan requested his armor bearer to go into battle with him against the Philistines. On the surface, it isn’t unusual for a wartime superior to ask a soldier for support in war.

Since one of the stated goals of modern society is the erasure of gender identity, it comes as no surprise that with Mother’s Day approaching, some on the fringes are crying sexism. Normally the fringes don’t bother me all that much. Crazy’s been around for a long time, and that’s not likely to change. But our culture has apparently installed an HOV lane from crazy straight into the downtown district of normal, because normal is changing at a rapid pace.
