Hmmm… Moxie or A Rebel

Mom did it again! She gave me something to ponder on; something she may think as insignificant, yet in reality is not. Mom and I talk frequently each week, usually by phone. She and Dad are in their eighties and live in the same house where they raised six children. Keeping in touch by this communication device is a way of checking in making sure everything is okay. It was during today’s chat Mom mentioned I had moxie while we rehashed some recent events she and Dad were witnesses to.  Moxie, huh?  Is it moxie or being a rebel, I thought. Is it courage or unruliness to ask questions others do not dare to voice aloud? Is it determination or opposing those in charge to address the big elephant sitting in the room others try very hard to ignore? I guess the answer to that question is, the motives behind each action determine whether its moxie or a rebel. If getting to the truth is the motive, then moxie it is, where stirring the pot in willful defiance says rebel. (Galatians 6:9, Zechariah 8:16, Ephesians 4:25, Proverbs 17:11)

    • This topic came up again, you quessed it, in another talk with my Mom. She believes this moxie is God’s job for me right now. Boy, she keeps me thinking. 🙂
      Keep the Faith!
