Kath and Kel

Kath and Kel make an insatiable couple as they share their love for each other and their hobbies.

Exodus 15:1-27

Reference: v.21 Miriam sang to them:
“Sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
he has hurled into the sea.” (TNIV Bible)

Explore: Kath and Kim exploded onto our screens in 2002 with a comedy series that took Australia by storm.  The mother/daughter characters were birthed originally on Fast Forward in the early 90s, but the stand-alone series has changed the vocab of many appreciative fans. While Kath and Kim are brilliant in their roles, great friends and family also support them: Kim’s husband, Brett, friend Sharon and Kath’s partner, Kel.  Kath and Kel make an insatiable couple as they share their love for each other and their hobbies.  One such hobby is their love of dancing which was displayed for the nation to see on the competition series, Dancing with the Stars. Their dancing is hilariously unconventional, even to the point of disturbing in some places… but that’s what makes it so good. One thing about Kath and Kel, however, is that they have such a love for life.  Whether they are dancing, power walking, perfecting the perfect sausage or shopping for matching tracksuits, they do it with passion and fervour no matter what anyone else thinks of them.

Application: When the Israelites crossed over the Red Sea on dry land they had, what I term, a Kath and Kel moment.  They were filled with such a joy for life that they broke into song and dancing. When God saves you from such a treacherous place you’re not so worried about what others will think, all you can do is make a joyful noise to Him. So often when I’m in church or going through life I’m too conscious of what others think of me, and I hold back on expressing my joy. And yet, maybe, I need a bit more Kath-and-Kel in me to express how I feel no matter what others think of me.

Prayer: Lord, forgive me for holding back due to my self-consciousness.  Help me to let go in your presence more. Amen.

How could you be more expressive and less self-conscious in your communication with God?
