I remember the first time I saw Gamu in the paper just before the X- Factor started. I thought she looked sweet. Then I heard her sing and I thought wow, the chick ain't half bad. I began to look forward to seeing what more she had to offer...and then boom ... as we all know disaster struck. She was kicked off the show and is now facing deportation over some immigration issue.
But this in not all all new. People have always been so quick to change their minds about people in the spotlight. I mean two years ago everyone was walking around talking about Obama like they knew him. Some even flew to America for his inauguration. People had his picture on their Facebook profiles. People acted like Michelle Obama was their Godmother. They talked about his family non stop, they stayed up to watch his speech. They bought the t-shirts, caps and banners. They chanted "Yes we can" along with him and millions of people all over the world. A few months down the line, he was forgotten. Some were even beginning to talk ill of him. He hadn't done what they hoped or half as much as they had hoped.
Over 2000 years ago people did the same to Jesus. They hailed Him and gave Him a hearty welcome, putting down palm trees on the road as He rode into Jerusalem. A few days later they were shouting "Crucify Him!"
Gee, what's wrong with us people?
One minute we're loving, the next we're hating.
I'm so glad that God is not like that. The bible says that Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever. So we can rest assured that even though we live in a changing world, He will not change. Come what may, He will always love us.
