We all occasionally behave in ways that seem totally irrational to others. They can not always understand our reasoning or the motives that lead us. Don't be surprised to be labeled as crazy. Even our greatest inventors were often ridiculed and laughed at behind their backs. Time revealed they were brilliant and far ahead of their critical peers.
Christians honor the Apostle Paul as one of our greatest heroes of the faith. He realized his thoughts might be considered crazy. In defense of his authority he laid everything on the line. "But if anyone dares to boast, I will too. (I am talking like a fool.) Are those people Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they from Abraham's family? So am I. Are they serving Christ? I am serving him more. (I am crazy to talk like this.) I have worked much harder than they have. I have been in prison more often. I have been hurt more in beatings. I have been near death many times (2 Corinthians 11:21b-23 ERV)." The truth is Paul's opponents were crazy to question the character of God's faithful servant.
