Chameleon

20120619-205739.jpg

While we were eating with some
Watoto families, and having the best time, one of the kids wanted to show me a chameleon he found. The lizard became a pet for the afternoon. He climbed all over everyone and changed colors.

A lot of the time we use chameleons in a negative sense. However if you think about it, if we are going to be effective in cross cultural ministry we must be able to blend to a degree. Not changing who we are or compromising on the important things but to be able to worship in any culture and feel comfortable.

So learn to be yourself but gel with those you are ministering to. It takes a big person and mature person to accomplish this.

Learn to love beyond yourself
