Many years ago when we were highly active
in sports, we developed the quaint ability to
dislocate one or both of our shoulders.
To dislocate means "to put out of place."
or "to displace from normal connections."
Painful as a dislocated shoulder is, it is
diminutive in comparison to the anguish that
oft chafes our souls as we realize that our
thoughts or actions have been displaced
from their normal and beautiful connection
to the mind of God.
A displaced shoulder is painful, alright,
but a dislocated soul is even worse.
