heurelho gomes is shit, don't build your house on him

the spurs full back vedran corluka vowed not to shave as long as the mighty yids stayed unbeaten under harry redknapp.........

..........so he's probably reported to training with a nasty shaving rash this week.

spurs got beat 2-1 by fulham at the weekend with their ever generous goalkeeper gomes gifting fulham the softest of goals whilst trying the extremely difficult skill of catching.

in recent weeks spurs have played with a togetherness and confidence that has brought me such joy. darren bent can't stop scoring. luka moderate is now luka magic. but gomes is shit. he looks nervous and instead of filling hs team mates with confidence he has them filling their pants.

jesus tells us "Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash."

we can go to church. we can go to prayer meetings. we can put our change in the charity box. we can smile and be nice. we can wear beige.

but if we don't have jesus as our rock, our refuge, our base, our inspiration, our energy, our foundation, to the point where our 'house', our life, our world, would collapse without him we need to maybe think about re-location..........or a new goalkeeper.

you might say:
"i do follow jesus' teachings. i love my neighbour. i pray. i give."

fantastic. keep doing these things. but jesus also teaches other things. more difficult, harder things;

love those who really piss you off, abuse you, attack you, gossip about you, hate you.
and pray for them.

don't judge others. even skanky arsenal fans.

forgive others. whatever they have done.

love jesus more than our own family, more than our own life.

go and tell people about jesus, who he is and what he's done. tell everyone. everywhere.

challenging stuff. i don't do this. i try to. and i'm going to keep on trying......................

Hi Dave,
I like that you're putting these thoughts out here for everyone to share.
I do have a thought though.
I struggle with you challenge to follow Jesus' example in not judging otheres, when you start the whole blog (even in title) with a very strong negative judgement on an individual because of his poor performance.
I do like how you've compared his poor performance as something not to build your house upon instead of a strong faith in Jesus, but just think it may be a bit harsh to judge someone who needs Jesus as much as you or I, especially at this time when he is not doing well and others may well be giving him abuse for his low perfomrance.
Just a thought to try and provoke some discussion.
Keep on writing...
