Playing Extreme Crazy
[Read/Study/Apply 1st Samuel 21:10-15]
By Ricardo ‘ReAsOn’ Butler
Have you as an artist ever had to“fake it to make it?” Come on! You don’t have to lie to the Lord. Be honest! I am going to take this in another direction then what you are thinking. So if you don’t want to be openly honest, then at least be honest with yourself.
Faking it until you make it is not at all at bad in certain situations. I actually see it as a strategy. There is a difference between this and compromising the Gospel to get in good with certain folk in the music ministry, industry, and culture.
I believe in David’s case of acting crazy just to survive around the non-believers of Achish he had to do it. It was life or death in his situation. I’m not saying that it will be of such extreme in your context, but who knows?
Anyway, you all know I believe David was the Lord’s example of all creative arts, music, and entertainment ministries.
